All of the one-word bird names I'm aware of (I typed in about 20, not a single one was accepted) must have other words in their names that I am not aware of.

What about lark, eagle, cardinal, goldfinch, chickadee, meadowlark...I'm with Kalbahamut. What makes those unacceptable?

None of those are a species name. For example eagle could be bald eagle, golden eagle, white-tailed eagle or many others but there is no bird simply called eagle.
