    • 5th century, Łazar Pʿarpecʿi, Patmutʿiwn Hayocʿ [History of Armenia] 7:[1][2]

        and the large and powerful aquatic birds that seek out weeds and feed on moss—the swan, duck, and goose, and many other numberless coveys of birds, terrestrial or aquatic.
Usage notes[edit]

In contrast with the generic term թռչուն (tʿṙčʿun, bird, any living thing which flies), հաւ (haw) has a more complex, although smaller, semantic range which primarily includes birds which are useful to men.
