I tried rook for the R clue and it didn't take. I got all pissy, looked it up on Wikipedia and saw that the rooks are slightly smaller. Well played Jetpunk

They do peck trees to get food. They also do it to attract a mate.

They peck at insects in the bark and worms in wormholes of the trees. They also peck to mark their territory.

They peck on trees because that is woodpecker morse code. They send secret messages that way. I've actually cracked their code and have covertly listened in on some woodpecker conversations. They tell a lot of knock-knock jokes.

Funny, I tried that first too (just from the description, otherwise I had no clue), then tried common extensions for birds. Didn't have to try hard though as I got it straight on the first attempt. Lucky guess!

I would have gotten the "Y" bird if the clue had been, "The state bird of Alabama," but never having heard its call, I had no idea.

There are two different yellowhammers. The state bird is not the one with the call that sounds like Beethoven.

I wouldn't say magpies and ravens are merely "like" crows, given that they are crows; the word "crow" refers to the genus. I'm guessing you're comparing them with the carrion crow (which a lot of people just refer to as a crow), but a more accurate wording would be "A type of crow with black and white plumage" or "A large species of crow".

Do Yellowhammers sound like Beethoven's fifth? I always thought they went "Little-bit-of-bread-and-no-cheese" whereas Beethoven's 5th goes something like "Da-da-da-DAAA".

My mistake. It turns out that yellowhammer is used as a name for two different sorts of birds.

I've not heard a yellowhammer's song before, but blue tits definitely sound like Beethoven's Fifth.

The many flamingos I saw in the extreme south of Patagonia would beg to differ with this quiz on being designated 'tropical'. Well they would if they could talk and had any concept of such things. But yeah, some flamingos may be found in the tropics, but the majority of their range is outside the tropics and in some cases waaaaay outside the tropics.

They can be also seen in Cyprus and probably further north. Though is quite warm even in winter, it's nut exactly in the tropics.

zizizizizizi zeee – sounds more like a rusty bike chain than Beethoven's 5th to me. For x you could look if you can find a good clue for a Xenops. It would probably be the least guessed of all these but at least you'd have a bird for every letter. Oh, and cranes are waterfowl? That's news to me.
