How much weight can the strongest bird carry?
There are 3 ways I see to answer this: For sheer strength involving carrying something and flying: overall, the American Harpy Eagle is probably the strongest - female Harpy Eagles (being larger than the males), weighing around 9 kg (20 lbs), regularly takes prey on the wing that weigh around the same - 9 kg (20 lbs) - and have been know to fly (with difficulty and for short distances) carrying animals weighing over twice their weight 18+ kg (40+ lbs). Certain owls are stronger pound for pound - for instance, although smaller than Eagles, Great Horned Owls routinely fly with weights 3 times their own - a 2.5 kg (5.5 lbs) GHO can lift 7-8 kg (16-17 lbs). And just for completeness; Ostriches, although they can't fly at all, can carry a 150 lb man on it's back and still run faster than human athletes.

probaly a shrike:)
\n0.5 to an ounce
2.0 lb max
They do not carry much weight - if they did, they wouldn't be able to fly. Everything about their bodies and way of life is aimed at low weight and high strength in the flight… muscles.
more than likely an ostriche, emu or rhea
Probably an ostrich (on its back).
It depends what tipe of bird it is a robbin about 40g
Donkeys can carry 40% weight.
Well Im about 45 lbs over weight and I can install a 180 lb alternator in a bus by myself. So 225?
1000 gm or 1 kilo gram
it depends on how strong and big you are and how much you weigh!
