I've heard or read that the tune was actually written for Donald Byrd, which would explain the version with a "y".

OK; I have a question for all you JPLers, and after 30 minutes of
surfing I can't find an answer. With the recent passing of Freddie
Hubbard, and checking the playlists of many of you who featured his
work, I found that a single tune has been referred to in different
ways on albums and lists. Here's the question: Is it "ByrdLike"
or
"Birdlike"?
   Anyone able to enlighten us on the factual reason for the difference?
