Birds' beaks

Birds’ beaks resemble the mouths of mammals, but they have no teeth, and are covered with horn that is constantly regrowing to counteract its wearing down. A beak serves above all as a means of catching food, but also used for  defense, for attracting  a partner and for cleaning and smoothing feathers.

Its form is, above all, an adaptation to the dietary regime of the bird.
