I agree that the bird and dog should be kept away from each other, but in general, a bird is not actually a prey to a dog. Some dogs might behave strangely and sometimes kill a bird, like a cat might sometimes eat leaves or grass. But in general, a bird is only a prey to cat. Some people even keep dogs at their houses and farms to protect their birds from cats.

Birds are prey animals, and they are prey to anything that is considered a predator. Dogs are predatory animals, and predators will eat anything they can catch, birds included, making birds prey to dogs.

Wrong. Birds are prey to dogs. Come watch my husky jump into a tree to pull a bird out of it. Labradors are trained to retrieve ducks during hunting. There's no such thing as an animal only being the prey of a certain other animal. If it moves like prey, it's prey. Dogs are equal opportunity and will eat anything they can get a hold of. You can't know for sure what will kick their prey drive in.
