Which coffee is best for birds?

No, no, not for drinking, for their natural habitats! There is 'sun' coffee and there is 'shade' coffee and which you prefer makes a difference in whether their natural habitat is destroyed or not. Read on:

I didn’t think anyone drank robusta anymore. Arabica is a lot better, and it’s what most people are used to, now.

Actually, lots of people drink Robusta without knowing it... Espresso and all its 'derivatives': lattes, cappuccinos, macchiatos, etc are made of Robusta - plus the 'iced', the 'frappes' and the Hispanic 'cafes' like Bustelo, etc are all Robusta. Oh, and Nescafe, too! Same as Turkish, Vietnamese and all the 'strong coffees'...

Arabica beans with their sweeter, softer taste, or the bold, deep flavor of Robusta beans.Previous research has demonstrated that shade-grown coffee (typically Arabica) can harbor substantial levels of biodiversity.
