Which is the type of nitrogen waste birds produce? Why does this feature, besides being an adaptation to the terrestrial environment, also mean an adaptation to flight?

Birds are uricotelic, i.e., like reptiles, they excrete uric acid. This substance requires less water to be eliminated and so it helps to decrease the body weight thus aiding in flight.
