I'd say this is a formal fallacy. "Birds normally can fly" cannot be interchanged with "All birds can fly" because of the fence "normally". If we were to treat normally as an indicator that only some birds can fly, this becomes a formal fallacy. Tweety is just one of the birds that cannot fly, as only some can.
