Neither do I. But, a couple of references you may want to look at:
Dunning, J.B. (ed.) 1993. CRC Handbook of Avian Body Masses. CRC
Press, Ann Arbor, 371 pp.
Silva, M., and J.A. Downing. 1995. CRC Handbook of Mammalian Body
Masses. CRC Press, Ann Arbor, 359 pp.
Thousands of body masses for almost any modern bird or mammal you can
think of in them.
