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!
