A beak, a bill, or a rostrum is the nose and mouth of a bird. The beak is used for eating, fighting, grooming and many other things.

Beaks on different types of birds can be very different in size, shape and color. Beaks are made of an upper and lower mandible. In most species, two holes are used for breathing.
