Birds That Start With C and Have 5 Letters

Birds are put under the class Aves, and they modified forelimbs as wings. There are approximately 10,000 known bird species distributed among a vast range of habitats, from tropical rain forests to icy shores according to IUCN.  Birds look beautiful because of the multicolor feather. There are also birds who are featherless but they are not naturally born like that. Due to Psittacine Beak and Feather Disease (PBFD) birds do loss feather,  one such popular example is a parrot called Rhia.

Of the total ten thousand bird species, the name of the birds start from a to z. We did an attempt to list the name of birds with five letters, and they start with alphabet C.

Here is the list of Birds That Start With C and Have 5 Letters.
