Why do birds have so many kinds of beaks? “Have you ever noticed that different species of birds have different shaped beaks? You would expect birds that live in the same habitat

to eat the same food sources. However, to avoid competition with each other, birds have had to adapt over time to fill different niches within the habitat. One of those adaptations is the shape of the bird’s beak, which is used to gather and eat food.” (Project Birdman - Kesler
