why si is not in the second position?


It is.

From tips and notes for Prepositions - Accusative:

The main challenge for foreign learners is that the se wants to be in second place, after the first unit of meaning in the sentence, whether the first unit is expressed in one word or through a complex clause.


I really can't imagine any common circumstances where this sentences would be said unless we are talking about the names of bird species (blue jays, sparrows, etc.) rather than the names of individual birds. Could this be the meaning?


Duolingo sentences are sometimes strange. Anyway, I have certainly met individual birds who did have names.
