The First Name Game

The photo quiz is too easy for you? Here's a different kind of educational challenge. Below are three clues for three different birds. Name the bird that fits the clue, keeping in mind that one clue may apply to multiple birds. Feel free to name them all or just one. No need to answer all at once either, you can answer each one separately and take your time if you prefer. Ready, set, go!
