David Stowe beat me to it:  Monty Python's "ex-parrot" (Norwegian Blue.)

The use of "X" for "extinct" would be a useful learning tool; "there
would have been a bird here, but..."

Michael Morcombe's guide lists Xanthomyza phrygia (Regent Honeyeater),
Xanthotis flaviventer (Tawny-breasted Honeyeater) and X. macleayana
(Macleay's Honeyeater), and Xenus cinereus (= Tringa cinereus:
Terek Sandpiper.)

Alternatively, this page might help - though baby names ranked higher
on my search for "bird names starting with x" ("Xavian" = x + "avian".)
