I don't know for sure but from looking at it it appears to be a carved body maybe a half bowl on top of a round cake and then carved slightly to round out the bottom area. The head could be rice crispy treats or. The rest appears to be fondant details hand molded and attached to the cake. The beak and feet could possibly be rice crispy treats covered in fondant and then attached or fully fondant made and left to dry before being attached to the cake. The details on the top of the head would have been let to dry a bit before attaching. It is also possible that this bird and the details are covered in modeling chocolate as opposed to fondant which sets up faster to hold shapes. Not sure if I have been any help here but thought I would try and give you a place to start.
