A Tin Bird (Gallus gallus stannum) is a species of bird in the same family of chickens. Like lotsa other creatures, this species lives in the Estrella Starsystem around The Clangers' Planet, with some enslaved by the Clangers.
Tin Birds live in colonies around asteroids that float around The Clangers' Planet. They feast on Glow Buzzers however, they will eat anything if they haven't ate in a while, even if it's titanium. They're insides are actually edible, and are a key ingredient in making Tin Nuggets, and they're beaks are able to break through Cheese, which Cheese Irwin hates, the Tin Bird population is definitely a good one, they are far from extinction.
