William Rodney "Bird" Averitt (born July 22, 1952) is a retired American basketball player.

Born in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, he played collegiately for Pepperdine University. Afterward, he was drafted in the fourth round of the 1973 NBA Draft by the Portland Trail Blazers and the second round of the 1973 ABA Draft by the San Diego Conquistadors.[1]

He played for the San Antonio Spurs (1973–74) and Kentucky Colonels (1974–76) in the American Basketball Association for 236 games, winning the 1975 ABA championship with the Colonels. After the Colonels were disbanded as part of the ABA-NBA merger, Averitt joined the Buffalo Braves through the 1976 ABA dispersal draft, playing with that team for the 1976-77 season until joining the New Jersey Nets for the 1977-78 season, playing 130 games in the NBA with those two teams.
