THIS WAS TAKEN IN THE BAHAMAS
Some kind of bird near the beach in Nassau.
Bottom right of the photo, directly above the Spanish hogfish.
This is the Bahamas subspecies
Range-- Southeast Asia, Malay Peninsula, Sumatra, Borneo, and Java
Habitat-- Found in lowlands and hill forests; few harmful predators besides larger mammal; habitat destruction would be the main cause of extinction
Niche-- eats mostly fruit and insects; long bills help them get food that is not available to many other organisms
Me and Jacob's favorite bird cause it was flying around like crazy the entire time!
Range-- throughout the world; originated in Middle East
Habitat-- mostly domesticated now; farms; wherever herders have taken them; the ones that are still wild inhabit the dry hot regions of north Africa, Ethiopia, Near East and western to central Asia
Niche-- domesticated ones are mostly used for carrying things; feed mostly on vegetation; hunted by wolves
Have a third eyelid!
Range-- Southeastern United States through the Gulf of Mexico
Habitat-- sea grasses
Niche-- feed on small crustaceans; many fish eat them including the perch and bass, garpike,and sharks
Habitat-- Open wetlands
Range-- Tropical Africa south of the Sahara
Niche-- eat mostly fish; big beak is used for spearing prey; eaten by larger mammals but not threatened at this point so doesn't have to many natural predators
