There are a few notable cats from magic history if you want to dig them up - The one drops in particular are pretty good.
There are a few more if you want 1/1s or chunky green/white blockers, but there are enough creatures to make the tribe ok - the only reason they aren't great is that they are a little unfocussed - Pride of the Clouds wants flying creatures, steppe wants landfall, nacatyl particular lands, arbiter tax effects, warder flicker, etc etc.
Best of luck - a nethroi brew feels more likely to work out than anything else I can think of.

Favorable Winds is also pretty solid and very useful against sweepers
Curious Obsession is probably worth running over staggering insight as the half mana cost will generally be better than lifelink
finally im a big fan of Spectral Sailor as its a solid turn 1, its a spirit which is great instant speed pump for wanderer and its late game card draw.

Unless you're playing with some funky homebrew rules, your commander does have to be a legendary creature. For bird tribal, Kangee, Aerie Keeper or Kangee, Sky Warden would be the most obvious choices. Also, Screaming Seahawk does not get around the singleton restriction in the same way something like Relentless Rats does. Even if it did, I still don't think it would be worth running over the much faster Squadron Hawk . More relevant inclusions might be Watcher of the Spheres , Warden of Evos Isle , Soulcatchers' Aerie , Migratory Route , Wingmate Roc , Aven Mimeomancer , Emeria Angel , Favorable Winds , Kangee's Lieutenant , Judge's Familiar , Steel-Plume Marshal , Battle Screech , Skycat Sovereign , Pride of the Clouds , Sephara, Sky's Blade , Jotun Owl Keeper , Windreader Sphinx , Aven Gagglemaster , Thunderclap Wyvern , Jubilant Skybonder , Rally of Wings , Eyes in the Skies , Alrund's Epiphany , Aerial Assault , Rise of Eagles , Door of Destinies , Herald's Horn , Dovescape , Gravitational Shift , Kindred Discovery , Call to the Kindred , Serra the Benevolent , or Seaside Haven .
Looks like my comment is now a little redundant here, but hope the seconded advice still helps. Good luck!

Birds is a surprisingly well supported tribe, and flying tribal has been getting a fair bit of support recently. So building birds in commander can be both fun and powerful because you can combine old and new cards.
A creature has to be a Legendary creature to be legal as your commander. The classic option for birds would be Kangee, Aerie Keeper . Some other options that are more "Flying tribal" than bird tribal could be Kangee, Sky Warden (a very budget-friendly option), Isperia the Inscrutable , Akim, the Soaring Wind , Derevi, Empyrial Tactician or Alela, Artful Provocateur .
Now you should decide whether you want cards that support having Birds specifically: Aven Brigadier , Celestial Gatekeeper , Crookclaw Elder , Seaside Haven , Soulcatchers' Aerie , Airborne Aid , Migratory Route , Animal Sanctuary etc. Or if you just want cheap flyers that may or may not be birds and just play flying tribal: Battle Screech , Favorable Winds , Gravitational Shift , Gust of Wind , Island Sanctuary , Kangee's Lieutenant , Lofty Denial , Pride of the Clouds , Rally of Wings , Sephara, Sky's Blade , Siani, Eye of the Storm , Skycat Sovereign , Soulcatcher , The Raven's Warning , Thunderclap Wyvern , Tide Skimmer , Warden of Evos Isle , Watcher of the Spheres , Waterkin Shaman , Windstorm Drake , Winged Words , Battle Screech .
Your list has a lot of pretty bad cards that don't support your strategy. I would cut Healing Salve , Resupply , Take Up Arms , Call to Mind , Survival Cache , Refurbish (has 4 targets in your deck and no matter what you get you pay more mana than you should), Siegecraft etc. Pure lifegain spells are bad unless you build around them, and this is supposed to be a bird/flying deck right? Cards that make tokens without flying are not great because your lords and synergy don't make them better. So even though Raise the Alarm is a solid magic card, you would prolly rather have like a Mistral Charger because you can build synergy around it.
Removal is always good. You can almost never have too much of it. However, if you are really cool, you can try to play removal and card draw that is flavorful and synergistic as well: Ravenform , Wing Shards , Aerial Assault , Swan Song , Winged Words , Gust of Wind , Lofty Denial . Also, sol ring is great but more ramp is usually a good idea in commander, and Azorius Keyrune is also a bird!
Good luck with the screechy dudes!

HyrdaDOOM666: Skycat Sovereign and Pride of the Clouds (preferably the latter) are definitely on my radar, and will probably be my next addition. Perhaps Staggering Insight could be another target for Zur the Enchanter to fetch. Lord_Olga: It's not uncommon to not see my enchants in games. I guess the sensible thing to do would be to bump up Favorable Winds , but personally I just like Zur the Enchanter . I completely agree about Jubilant Skybonder , it's kind of just there at the moment because I have it. As for Mausoleum Wanderer , at first I also thought it was a bit iffy on paper, but in testing it's been surprisingly good. I put it in as a 1 drop flyer, but actually the counter ability has been much more useful than I would have anticipated. Don't forget, Empyrean Eagle and Favorable Winds buff it and its ability as well. Pilfering Imp is a good suggestion, but I'm not so sure about paying 3 times the cost for the Duress ability. It would mean I'd have less chance to snipe a problem card before dropping something important, which is why I'm playing it. I'm a bit confused about Watcher of the Spheres being maxed. Personally, I was thinking of cutting it altogether. Assuming I take out Jubilant Skybonder and Zur the Enchanter , that only leaves 3 Empyrean Eagle which benefit from the cost reduction effect. At that point, mightn't I as well just replace him with Pride of the Clouds ?
Anyway thanks for your suggestions
