While it’s true some species twitter and chatter more than others, every bird’s beak tells a story. A bird’s beak is a picture of their overall health and a snapshot of how they’re doing. It would, of course, be great to say that a healthy beak equals a healthy bird, and if that were the case, all wellness exams would just be a glance at their nose!
