How does a bird beak work?

Ever wondered at how the different types of bird beaks work and what type of tool they are like? We investigated that during our study of Grandfather's Journey.

First, we checked out a handout that shows various bird beaks, and compared and contrasted them. (Scroll down in this forum http://www.cssforum.com.pk/css-optional-subjects/group-v/zoology/14536-notes-zoology-10.html)

Then we got a clothespin, a tweezers, a spoon and a scissors to simulate the various ways birds use their beaks, and we tried to pick different items up! We recorded our observations on this handout I created.
