English: names of birds that may sound insulting

Dear linguaphiles, I need a word that a\ is a name of a real bird (not an imaginary one) and b\ sounds insulting. I need as many different words as it's possible, to select a suitable one for a translation.

Basically one characher is mocking his male relative and just calling him inane names (but I'd like to conserve the association with birds).

Many thanks in advance!
