I got the right answer by following the clues, but I am super confused by the "but" behind the comma, is that really correct?
You're right. It can't be. Form is also not correct (down form the foliage).

A South American bird that forages for winged termites and other small insects while swinging upside down form the foliage of tall trees, but the graveteiro belongs to the ovenbird family, a group of New World tropical birds that includes more than 230 species and that are represented in virtually every kind of habitat.

A. graveteiro belongs to the ovenbird family, a group of New World tropical birds that includes more than 230 species and that are

B. graveteiro belongs to the ovenbird family, a group of New World tropical birds that includes more than 230 species and is

C. graveteiro belongs to the ovenbird family, a group of New World tropical birds that include more than 230 species and is- subject-verb agreement issue- a group of New World tropical birds that include

D. graveteiro, which belongs to the ovenbird family, a group of New World tropical birds that includes more than 230 species and that are - no verb

E. graveteiro, which belongs to the ovenbird family, a group of New World tropical birds that includes more than 230 species and is- no verb

1.
A. a group of New World tropical birds that includes more than 230 species and that are - Do we reject option A based on subject-verb agreement issue? A group is singular and needs that is?
B. a group of New World tropical birds that includes more than 230 species and is -

2. Also, in cases like option A, is it possible for parallel that clauses to modify two different nouns? As in the first 'that' modifies group and the second modifies birds?

3. In the overall sentence structure, do we have a verb before Comma , but here?

Your analysis is correct. The only situation in which we would not eliminate this choice is one in which the question had no completely correct answer and in which we were forced to choose this choice because it was better than the others.

I'm pretty sure that you already know the answer to your question. Is such a structure logical?

No, and it appears that an error was made in the transcription of the question and that that "but" should not be present.

I stupidly went for C as I didn't pay attention to what was included in the "birds" within C, so i missed the species. Good points made by experts above and good learnings on this.
