Shared Cards Ancestral Vision - This is a rebalanced version of an overpowered card called Ancestral Recall.   Basically you get to draw three cards after 4 turns have passed.   4 turns might seem like a drawback, but it's not that bad for decks that favor playing lots of cheap cards and fewer lands.

Swans of Bryn Argoll - If damage would be dealt to this bird, cancel the damage and you instead draw 3 cards.`

Feather Proliferation - Small group of birds that grow in power from proliferation. Aven Mimeomancer - Allows you to put a feather counter on any creature you want.   Those creatures' stats changes to 3/1 and gains flying.   Excellent defensive and offensive card because you can buff your weak creatures but at the same time depower an enemy's superstrong creature!

Kangee, Aerie Keeper - Multikicker allows you to put feather counters on it.   Birds get +1/+1 for each feather counter on it.   Benefits from proliferation and combos really really really well with Aven Mimeomancer's own feather counters!

Soulcatcher - You picked this first.   Gets a +1/+1 counter for each bird that dies.   Benefits from proliferation!

Soulcatchers' Aerie - An enchantment equivalent of the Soulcatcher that gives the bonus to all birds!   Likewise benefits from proliferation.

Thrummingbird - Allows you to proliferate (add counters to that which already have counters) whenever it deals combat damage.

Contagion Clasp - Put a -1/-1 counter on a creature.   4 mana to proliferate.

Hitchcock's Revenge! - Aims to create many bird tokens to overwhelm the enemy.   Closest thing to your original deck. Pride of the Clouds - A cheap flyer that gets stronger the more fliers you have.   Later in the game you can use its "forecast" ability to repeatedly create 1/1s.

Jötun Owl Keeper - A cheap 3/3 with a cumulative upkeep (add a counter each turn and pay that amount of mana to keep the creature).   Once you can't pay the upkeep or if the creature dies, it goes in the graveyard and convert the upkeep counters into 1/1 bird tokens.

Gustcloak Savior - If an attacking creature of yours becomes blocked, you may untap the creature and remove it from combat.   It's perfect for giant token armies because you can overwhelm him/her and save the creatures that would otherwise die in combat.

Aven Brigadier - You picked this first.   Buffs your token army.

Emeria Angel - Landfall-powered bird maker.

Suggested Cards for Removal Aven Trailblazer - Its domain ability is weak in decks with only two colors, and even more so because it only affects the toughness.

Aven Squire - Exalted is an ability that needs to be present on multiple cards to really become powerful because you're otherwise limited to one attacker with a weak buff.
