AMAZING BIRD FACTS!!

  1. Raptors have a massive, sharp claw called talon used particularly for grasping, killing and tearing the prey.

  2. Chicks have a small horny projection at the tip of their upper mandible called egg tooth which they use to break through the eggshell.

  3. Birds store berries, seeds and other food items in the crevices of barks, under leaves, in cavities and the like, an activity called food caching.

  4. Based on its call, the Red-wattled Lapwing is sobriqueted - the ‘did-you-do-it’ bird

  5. Along with many other living beings, birds eject partially digested food from the crop, mainly to feed their young ones. In other words, they regurgitate.
