Abstract:
Seabirds have bills designed for their own style of eating. Some are pointed, like that of the sanderling, which allows it to poke into the sand. The brown pelican has a long, bulky beak that allows it to seine 2.5 gallons of water for fish. Still other birds have beaks that are flat, stumpy, or slender.
