Solution two more birds Comment 2 of 2 |
Perhaps it is due to the number of occurances possible with two-letter names of birds that Charlie did not list the following
[(row start, column start: row end, column end)]:

OO : (Moho noblis) of Hawaiian islands, also known as the yellow-tufted honey sucker
        (7,6:7,7), (7,6:8,6), (7,7:7,6), (7,7:8,6), (7,13:8,13),
        (8,6:7,6), (8,6:7,7), (8,11:9,11), (8,13:7,13), (9,11:8,11), 
        (11,5:12,4), (12,4:11,5);
and
OU : (Psittirostra psittacea), a finch in the Hawaiian honeycreeper subfamily, Drepanidinae
        (1,13:2,13), (3,10:4,11), (4,5:5,5), (5,12:4,11), (7,7:7,8)
