"Birdland" is a 2003 album by English blues rock band the Yardbirds and was the first Yardbirds release in over 35 years. The musicians in this version of the Yardbirds differed greatly from their 60's counterpart containing only drummer Jim McCarty and rhythm guitarist Chris Dreja, although Jeff Beck makes a cameo on one track. Aside from the new replacements (John Idan, Gypie Mayo, Alan Glen) several guest cameos are done by notable guitarists such as Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Slash, Johnny Rzeznik, Jeff "Skunk" Baxter, and Brian May.

The album contains seven new tracks composed mostly by McCarty or Dreja, and eight remakes of Yardbirds songs from the 1960s.
