    Default obvious but -

    The first thing is to never let them eat the bird in the first place.

    Has your dog been force fetched? That might stop it.....some others will have better ideas......

    Once the dog figures out that they can do it would be hard to break.

    I don't FF unless I know a dogs basics are solid. I would go back to "basics" and redefine them. Especially the come or here command. When done right it cures a lot of retrieving issues as well.
    I would stop using wings and birds during this time period. Don't create any further bad habits by presenting them. Once you have a good recall in obedience then you can start retrieving again. By then the command of "here" or "come" will mean something and is a reinforceable command.

    Which are critical, I once used barbed wire around the dummy. Didn't take long and he stopped.
