I suppose that if pigs could fly, and stayed near water, or hunted, or both, they would be doubly or triply unkosher.

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
