Your time zone settings would err more than a second, more like on the scale of hours.

Go up to them, make small talk for a bit of time, then bring up your birding interests, show them what you've done, than transition into asking them about Ornith.
(or
You: Hola, what do you think about <insert current happenings of mutual or general interest>
(once topic is running out)
You: Have I told you about this bird I saw the other day that's a really rare find?
(show pics/records of you observing the bird)
-then if they don't offer Ornith suggest it in whichever way seems appropirate.

Were you not put into ornithology on your team schedule, or do they just think that you aren't interested in the event? Basically, is your team schedule already made?

I would suggest being more direct than that.

So, yesterday I went up to the captain of my team and said if I don't get forensics i'm going to cry (as a joke, obviously), and one of the older teammates who helped coach my middle school team told her how good a crime i was, and the captain said,"I'll see what I can do". So,the direct approach worked pretty well for me lol.

If you're good at it and interested, I see no reason they wouldn't put you on it.
