What else do the members of your family know about the special functions performed by different bird beaks?

Here are some sites that will give you more information.

Communication – Sounds And Gestures

My husband and I were walking in the woods the other morning and we saw a weed that had been pulled up by the roots and left lying in the trail. I said to my husband, "I wonder why they didn't…" and then I made a sound with my teeth and my lower lip that sounded something like "ffftttt" and flung my right hand out to the side. My husband understood perfectly that I was wondering why the person who pulled up the weed didn't toss it off to the side of the trail.
