I’ve found that animals fall into three groups. One, the super common ones that everyone learns early on, cat, dog, horse, cow, etc. The wider grouping of animals that are fairly common and either used in a lot of cultural contexts or are still kinda “common” but people always know them, like a peacock or a something, but the names will get more specific this is where 鶯 fits in. Then, the names of animals that you don’t really come in contact with, or very specific species names.
The first two come up, the last can come up sometimes, like マテ貝 which is a type of clam and only came up in a random Shinchan episode, but I’ll never forget it because his response is 間違い？
