Bird has no criminal record prior to his incarceration. Though records of Peña Duro were sketchy at best, they contain no mention of a "Bird" alias. His admission and incarceration paperwork appear to have been lost. Since his escape, Bird is responsible for the kinds of heinous crimes that are committed at the behest of his master.
Following the reopening of Arkham Asylum a few years later, Bird fell out of contact with Bane, who suffered great mental damage from using the prototype super-Venom, TN-1. The most likely reason being that Bird lost faith in following Bane, whose mind greatly diminished and was completely obsessed with killing Batman.

He acts as a side announcer for Bane when Bane is either active in combat or he has marked the entry door in which he will show up in.
Bird is unshakably loyal to Bane and incredibly ruthless when his master ordered him to complete a task. Despite his high ranking in Bane's army, Bird is just another expendable puppet who takes a very 'don't say, don't think' attitude and did any order that his master requested no matter how heinous. Bird is said to have been imprisoned in Peña Duro along with Bane and shared his master's cunning, brutality, and intelligence.
