The Saddlers have swooped for the Northern Ireland international to try and help stop the club's dismal run of seven league games without a win.
Baird shot to prominence with The Saints last season when he was picked to play in the FA Cup final after only playing in one Premiership match.
However, the youngster has failed to win a place in the starting XI this term and Gordon Strachan has allowed him to go out on loan to gain some first-team experience.
"He is a determined lad who is desperate to make his mark in the game and will be looking to gain valuable experience during his time with us," said Walsall boss Colin Lee to the club's website.
The 21-year-old will go straight into the squad for the Division One clash with Preston on Saturday.
