    1. Language Enthusiast

      A lot of people associate Grey Francolin or a Partridge with the name of a Titir bird. However, I feel that a bird looking like a Turkey is called a Titir.

  8. I think “BOK” is not Crane bird. Its Egret actually what we call “Bok” in Bengali. Actually Crane is the name of the family of birds with very long legs and a large variety of birds falls in this family. The bird what we called “Sarosh”in bengali comes under this family(not sure what its called in bengali). Flamingos are also in the family of crane.
    Hope this helps!
