Ornithology B/C

Post by Nooran008 » October 14th, 2019, 4:01 pm

Well no one's really started this one, and I felt that somebody should, so here we are. I'm new here so I hope I'm not doing anything wrong, but anyway, let's get this started!

1) What is this bird? (Common name and scientific please)
Image
2) What is it's diet?
3) What is it's order? (not family)
