You already have some terrific answers and that link with the list is exceedingly good, but one bird I did not see on that list that I know is monogamous is the Canadian snow geese, if that is helpful at all.

An estimated 90 percent of all bird species are monogamous. Monogamy is defined as one male mating with one female and forming a "pair bond."
That bond may last for a single nesting (House Wrens), an entire breeding season (most bird species, including most passerines), several successive breeding seasons (observed in some pairs of American Robins, Tree Swallows, Mourning Doves, etc.), or life (albatrosses, petrels, swans, geese, eagles, and some owls and parrots).
What is true for the species isn't necessarily true for every individual within the species, however. Birds don't just do billing and cooing. They also do billing and monica-ing.
