Different Types of Birds and Their Habitat

1) What Kind of Beak Does a Kingfisher Have?

  • Kingfishers have long and dagger-like beaks.
  • Their beaks are elongated, which helps them hunt fish.

2) What Is a Flipper? Name a Few Animals Except Birds That Have Flippers.

  • A flipper is a flattened limb-like structure which helps in swimming.
  • Animals that have been adapted to aquatic locomotion have flippers.

3) How Do Ducks Strain Foods From Excess Water and Other Inedible Objects?

  • Ducks have flattened wide beaks.
  • Around the edge of the beaks, they have small teeth-like structures called lamellae.
  • These lamellae help them strain small insects, worms and plants out of the water, which acts as food for them.
