The eastern bluebird is considered an attractive bird native to this continent by many bird-watchers. (Source: Iran's university entrance exams)
1. Is "attractive bird" a subject complement?
2. Can we say "consider" is functioning as a linking verb here?
3. To me, It is not clear whether many birdwatchers consider it to be ‘attractive’ or ‘native to this continent’ or both. Isn't it an awkward sentence?
