This the part 3 of the Riley Rebus series. Be sure to check out part 2 and part 1

Prefix + Infix + Suffix :

enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here

To Clarify :

The answer is only 1 word

Hint :

Trust me, it's not what you first think

Additional Small Hint :

The third picture is an animal, but that wasn't what I meant

Another Hint :

The leaves in the second picture do not matter

4th Super Small Hint :

I know it's obvious, but in case you're wondering, the first image has been answered correctly by almost all who have tried

Medium Hint :

You should not see the 2nd image as tea, even though it still is tea

More Hints :

The third image is an eagle with a specific color (will not tell as it will make things too obvious), but that's not all, is it?

Another specific hint for image 2 :

Try looking at the tea picture from another person's perspective

  • $\begingroup$ Does this rebus require knowledge? i.e., would it be appropriate if this rebus included the knowledge tag or not? $\endgroup$ – Mr Pie Sep 7 '18 at 12:16
  • $\begingroup$ Well, it does include just a little knowledge (very little). I'll add it though, thanks for the suggestion :) @user477343 $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Sep 7 '18 at 13:05
  • $\begingroup$ Well, either way, this has proven to be a bit tricky. This is a nice Riley Rebus :P $\endgroup$ – Mr Pie Sep 7 '18 at 20:48

Let me try, is it

RETIRED

prefix:

it is a repeat or refresh icon, so I think the prefix is RE
(I just see Duck's comment about the prefix, but I found the answer myself )

infix:

a tea > TI

suffix:

I am not really sure, but I think it is a RED hawk

Probably a stretch but,

Rebus?

Prefix

Re, as stated by others

Infix

B-Tea?
B-tea

Suffix

A golden eagle. The bald eagle is the national bird of the United States, or US.

$\endgroup$

$\begingroup$

Ok, here is my answer and clarification:

RECHARGE

  1. RE for the first image

  2. Instead of Tea - I used the word chai which is another popular name for it, though I have changed it to char to make more sense as a word

  3. GE - because the bird is a Golden Eagle

Frankly, I cheated by looking at the "super close" answer of @jc1850 so I'll say:

retie or return

Prefix

Re, which everyone got

Infix

T, because it's a cup of tea

Suffix

ie, because it's the bird's eye hence the hint that "it's not the animal" or
urn, if this is an erne (sea eagle).

Though I really think the English language could use a new word:

turncuphawk which I define to mean a puzzle that makes everyone beat their heads against a wall.

$\begingroup$

My wild guess:

Retina

Prefix:

A replay button, hence Re.

Infix:

A cup of tea, hence ti.

Suffix (Not so sure about this one):

A golden eagle which can be found in North America, hence na.

EDIT: Regarding the last hint:

Is the infix D? Because when you look at cup from the opposite side of the "table" it kind of looks like the letter D

Are you a:

Reticle?

Reason:

Re(Replay) + Tea + Eagle. Sounds similar to Reticle. Also fits the title because if you are looking for something through a scope you aim at the target using the reticle.

    $\begingroup$ Nope that's wrong :) $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Sep 6 '18 at 2:27

I think the suffix is GE (Golden Eagle)

Second Attempt

Could it be:

Prefix

Retry

Infix

You sip (cip) tea

Suffix

Eagle

$\begingroup$

Possibly?

Research

Prefix like all before have said

re

Infix

hard to feel good about this but I believed it could be sip... but only the s

Suffix

This is what I feel the best about - perch

Justification of the hint -

The third picture is an animal, but that wasn't what I meant Perch is both the action the bird is involved in and a type of fish. So it is an animal but not what the creator was intentionally referencing.

I'm guessing the 2nd photo is actually minty, mint+tea. I was thinking redo-minty, as in rudimentary, but the hawk doesn't fit in well with that... Perhaps someone can take that and go from there.

I'll try another answer. Is it

it is a replay or refresh icon, so I think the prefix is RE

I am not really sure (again), is a bird means a TWEET?

Is the answer:

Recuperate?

First image:

"Re", as in your hint you state it's the answer most people have given for this

Second image:

"Cup", a cup of tea (can't be tea, according to your hint)

Third image:

"Perate" sounds like "parrot", but you clarified in your hint that it's an eagle?
