I'm pretty interested myself. Anything that isn't a human, or strongly looks human is an extreme rarity as far as playable races go in games. Avians (actual bird-people and not just humans with wings) in particular are near non-existent I am pretty sure.
As far as particular birds to base appearances on, I would vouch for Secretary Birds, Corvids, Vultures, Ratites, and Shrikes.
