    $\begingroup$ @AbhishekEkaanth I've a feeling you're referring to the eye - I didn't put that as an answer and in case it's the right one - it's not entirely black, more like brown, and the feathers... i would say fur instead $\endgroup$ – Alex Jan 24 '18 at 18:27

    $\begingroup$ @AbhishekEkaanth Someone actually put it as an answer - you can check accept. Also some tips for the riddle - generally it's a hint that the riddle is too broad if you have to add hints to narrow it down. Most of the answers here (including Will smith ~~) fits as an answer before the hints. However don't let that keeps you away from creating more fun riddle! $\endgroup$ – Alex Jan 24 '18 at 20:25

Before the hint, I thought it was

it has black, it has white
it has water (where it fishes)
it is made with feathers, but is not a bird
