Which birds use their beaks upside down?

toucans
flamingos
storks
penguins
Flamin­gos fil­ter-feed on brine shrimp and blue-­green algae. Their beaks are spe­cial­ly adapted to separate mud and silt from the food they eat, and are uniquely used up­side-­down. The fil­ter­ing of food items is assisted by hairy struc­tures called lamellae which line the mandibles, and the large rough-­sur­faced tongue.
