The only Egyptain bird like gods is Horus the avenger and Ra the sun god but Ra has a round ball like thing on his head have nt a clue what the bottom photo is. I have Bast the protector in my house. I ve even drawn on my front door the eye of Horus which means
The Eye of Horus is an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, royal power and good health.

3pb. The bird is a Nile Ibis.
I wouldn't say he liked them, but in order to stop hawkers from bothering us incessantly on our 25 wedding anniversary trip up the Nile, he bought them. Then look, here, I've already bought!!!!
