1. Can you recall another Tolkien tale that had a character conversant with fowl friends?
Well, according to the second version of The Lay of Leithan, Beren did understand the carrion-crows.
Turgon, Gandalf and probably Fingon spoke with eagles.

2. In a story riddled with deus ex machina, would you rate the thrush’s or the eagles’ contribution higher?

The eagles are more of a dues ex machina, the thrush is more of a wonder.

3. Tolkien conspiracy theory: the Arkenstone was a Silmaril, true or false. Like Eru in the corporeal disguise of Bombadil, this theory never seems to go away.

It won't, even if I say false.

"Bard is known as someone who forebodes gloomy things like floods and poisoned fish. Floods I can see, but poisoned fish? How and why would Bard forebode poisoned fish? Or is this just a slander against Bard?"
