My prefix, is not very good
My infix, a bird not in wood

    $\begingroup$ @Randal'Thor, I have to admit that the answer to the riddle that you were inspired to create helped me figure out the answer to this one. Thanks. $\endgroup$ – Domosed Mar 23 '19 at 20:07
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, @Randal'Thor. I was referring to the answer you only recently marked as incorrect :-) $\endgroup$ – Domosed Mar 24 '19 at 16:32
  • $\begingroup$ @Domosed Although now mine has been correctly solved, so I'll delete my previous comment. $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Mar 24 '19 at 16:32

Could it be

malarkey? This word means "meaningless talk; nonsense".

mal is a prefix for "in a faulty manner" like malfunction
lark is a bird
key is one of the synonyms to "answer"
"Fork, Mountain, London, Cancer" is kind of malarkey :-)

    $\begingroup$ Also, I believe the bird you suggested is usually found in open fields rather than woods. $\endgroup$ – Brandon_J Mar 23 '19 at 18:37
  • $\begingroup$ That's correct :] as a prefix, that word means bad, and that type of bird nests in the ground. Well done! $\endgroup$ – Sensoray Mar 23 '19 at 18:55
  • $\begingroup$ Can you edit it your answer to include the meaning of the word? So that way people who are unfamiliar with that term can understand is ^-^ $\endgroup$ – Sensoray Mar 23 '19 at 18:57

    $\begingroup$ Sure, I have just updated the answer to include the meaning of the word. Thanks. $\endgroup$ – Domosed Mar 23 '19 at 20:03
