I like this commander a lot. I'm going to suggest Skyblinder Staff to make your birds practically unblockable (only blocked by creatures w/reach). Awesome with Thrummingbird, with all those feather counters hanging around. You probably need some more protection or recursion. If you're going for a weenies strategy, you might want to drop your curve for your creatures and use Return to the Ranks to recur a lot of your graveyard. You might also want to add some extra card draw, for example with Dictate of Kruphix or Rhystic Study.

Optional adds: Coast Watcher, Cloudfin Raptor, Duskrider Falcon, Freewind Falcon, Mindshrieker, Palace Familiar, Stormscape Familiar

Cards you may want to replace: Rise of Eagles, Sage Aven, Aven Fateshaper, Aven Surveyor, Mist Raven, Murder of Crows, Raven Familiar, Fact or Fiction, Impaler Shrike

Good luck!
