Merl Reagle's Crossword

"Birds with Friends"
NOTE: The last names of this puzzle's nine theme answers can become bird names if you just trade a new letter for the one that's there. These "new" traded letters, when arranged correctly after the F below, will spell an alternate two-word title for this puzzle (10 letters in all). F _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _. What is it? Answer next week.
