Nope, it's bo'Degh, the general word of bird. There are a ton of other ones
I'm sure you'll have fun adding to your wonderful canon knowledge :)

Yes, it definatly is. Personally I think words for animals are very useful.
There have been many times I've wanted to talk about them, but just can't
without making up strange compound nouns. Also, they really add something to
