    Mate, I know that galayr and galaydh are the same thing. I corrected his definition of the word, not his dialect.

    Galaydh/galayr in Somali = falcon and not eagle as @yaanyuur said.

    @Hybrid @Dalmoor

    Haad is a general term for the act of flying e.g. "Gegidda ay diyaaradahu ka haadaan" or "Diyaaradda Daalo oo ka haaday gegidda diyaaradaha Berbera". it means Avian in English. so if you refer to any bird as a Haad in a context, you are correct.

    Eagle is Gorgor

    Falcon is Galaydh/Galayr

    Isn't gorgor a vulture? I know galayr as falcon and sometimes Eagle even tho the Eagle is more stronger than both hawks and falcon. The eagle is also rare in somali areas. Mostly falcons and hawks or vultures. I don't know about the coastal sides if there is a bald eagle

    hahahaha, didn't you hear about the infamous poem of sayid M.A.Hassan when he was was bombed by the British and he said complaining "Coomaadayaal duulaya ayay Cadan ka keeneene'" = "They have brought noisy vultures from Aden/Yemen" the name is not local but all over the Somali literature.

    Edit..
    Considering the ummah of the prophet have a medium age of 60-something I personally consider anyone above 30 as middle aged..which is factually correct description considering the average age of eartlingsss

    In Sweden at 70 you are a young man in South Sudan at 50 you are a lucky old aged man

    I guess you're right. You seem to be very fluent in Somali

    bald eagles are only found in North America. There are some martial eagles in west and south Somalia who are quite large but if I remember correctly, people back home refer to vultures as gorgor.

    Not fluent at all bro! as our language is very rich and extremely diverse, being a "hardcore" geeljire who grew up in rural Somalia in the 90s and never been to the west in my life; am not very happy with my meager knowledge of the language. Everyday i try to learn new stuff, but as i mentioned it is very hard to attain a high level command of the Somali language, it is too big and daunting to master.
