Thayer's Expanded Definition

ὄρνιξ (so manuscripts א D), equivalent to ὄρνις (which see): Luke 13:34 Tdf. The nominative is not found in secular writings, but the trisyllabic forms ὀρνιχος, ὀρνιχι for ὀρνιθος, etc., are used in Doric; (Photius (edited by Porson, p. 348, 22) Ἰωνες ὄρνιξ ... καί Δωριεις ὄρνιξ. Cf. Curtius, p. 495).

STRONGS NT 3733: ὄρνις ὄρνις, ὀρνιθος, , (ὈΡΩ, ὄρνυμι, (see ὄρθρος));

1. a bird; so from Homer down.

2. specifically, a cock, a hen: Matthew 23:37; Luke 13:34 (Tdf. ὄρνιξ, which see); (so Aeschylus Eum. 866; Xenophon, an. 4, 5, 25; Theocritus, Polybius 12, 26, 1; (others)).
