This episode—which is Number 86—is all about bird beaks.
This will be an overview of beak anatomy, function, evolution, and diversity.
The head of every bird on Earth is adorned with a beak. A bill. And to the delight of us all, those beaks come in a wild variety of shapes and colors.
Just picture the mugs of toucans, vultures, ducks, parrots, flamingos, and pelicans.
The diversity of beak shapes like these is one of the fascinating things about birds.
Birds use their beaks for all sorts of tasks. These appendages are vital tools, used for getting food, for grooming, for communication, and more.
