If, in doing so, they also remove flying type and add a wind type I'd be cool with it.

The Bird type was probably a beta typing in Red and Green, and it's still present in G/S/C's coding as a leftover type from Gen I. Moves like Peck, Drill Peck, Wing Attack, and Sky Attack could have been Bird-type moves. Doduo and Dodrio could have been Bird-type Pokemon, the only ones without a Flying subtype.

A common belief is that GameFreak eventually found the Bird type redundant with the Flying type and decided to merge them into one type, which resulted in all Bird-type moves becoming Flying-type moves and Doduo and Dodrio having to adopt a Flying typing to continue receiving STAB on previously Bird-type moves like Drill Peck.

Nowadays, the abandoned Bird type continues to show its influence through new moves such as Featherdance, Brave Bird, and Pluck, which continue to be exclusive to avian and avianoid Pokemon.
