Bird beaks

All birds have beaks with no teeth.

Some beaks are straight and some are curved.

Some beaks are long and some are short.

Some beaks are sharp and some are soft.

Some birds eat only fruit and seeds, so their beaks do not need to be strong.

Some birds eat young animals and need stronger beaks to break the meat apart.
