The nickname for the smallest PAR Can lighting instrument.

American DJ P16A SPECIAL Par 16 Mini Can, Silver, with Lamp | Full Compass

"Birdie" in common usage is any can that will accept either a PAR16 or MR16 lamp. A variety of base types are available including but not limited to E26/27 screw, GU and BiPin. The two most common voltages are 12v and 120v

We here at suggest that "Birdie" be used in reference to can's using MR16 lamps and "PAR16" for those cans using PAR lamps.
