Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אֲנָפָה f. the name of an unclean bird of which there were several species (לְמִינָהּ). Leviticus 11:19; Deuteronomy 14:18. LXX. χαραδριός, i.e. a bird living on the hollows and banks of rivers [“perhaps, sand-piper”]. Bochart (Hieroz. ii. 335, sqq.) renders it, angry bird, with the Hebrews themselves, and he understands, the bird زُمَّجُ i.e. a kind of eagle, so called from its angry disposition. Among irascible birds, is also the parrot, which is here understood by both the Arabic versions.
