I can't find the Spanish for this species of bird, as in The Scarlet Ibis.
I suppose that if pigs could fly, and stayed near water, or hunted, or both, they would be doubly or triply unkosher.
Flying pigs? I already ducked under the table.
Thank you! That's a handy thing to know--I'm preparing classes on ecology, in Spanish, and looking into Jewish ecological ethics, ...it is forbidden to eat ibis in the Jewish scriptures, among other waterbirds and birds of prey, ..."ciguenyas" and "garzas", too, ...
It is the same in English and Spanish. It comes from Greek. http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Threskiornithinae
