Shortening their name to the Birds, the band released four singles, including "Leaving Here" and "No Good Without You Baby," both in 1965.

     Gardner and Wood quit The Birds and joined The Creation, a mod band popular in Europe,  especially  Germany. In 1967, Gardner recorded some tracks with Jon LordRonnie Wood and Twink  under the name  Santa Barbara Machine Head.
