Birds have a cloaca where urinary and fecal material are jointly stored until time for elimination. Depending on the species of bird and the diet there will be varying proportions of liquid and solid material. You can see the white liquid urinary portion of the excrement at the top of the stream and the solid darker drop of fecal material from the intestines at the bottom.
