The size and shape of a bird's beak is telling of its diet. Bird's beaks are special adaptations to get food and vary according to if the bird eats plants, animals, or seeds.
Most birds make homes called nests. They are built out of twigs, hair, bits of trash, mud, and many other items. Many birds build these nests in tree branches, but they can also be built on the ground or on buildings such as rooftops.
Birds have different feathers that work together to allow the bird to fly. These feathers occasionally fall out of the bird's feather coat. These feathers last a very long time after the bird has died and humans have used them for writing and crafts in the past.
