Bird 'n Burger circa 1965

I'm looking for information on a chain concept called "Bird 'n' Burger", circa 1965-1969. It featured chicken, hamburgers, and pizza, and possibly soft serve "ice cream". There was one in Landover Hills, Maryland, at that time, and site still exists as a nursery--but the building has been obliterated. I'd like to know if there were any other locations.

(This might be so obscure that the moderators may delete this thread, and if so, I understand.)

    I just read an obituary about the guy that started that chain. It was in the washington post.

    Before my time, but if they were still around I'd nominate this artwork to hang somewhere on the wall:

    I didn't see that obit, and I can't find it on the wpost website. Do you remember his name and/or when that was printed?
