Eurasian Нoopoe

The gorgeous brown Eurasian hoopoe, which has a large beak, is a native of Europe, Asia, and Africa. Its cinnamon-colored crest serves as a defining characteristic. They can reach a length of 12 inches and use their beaks to comb the ground for worms, insects, and larvae.

Sword-Billed Hummingbird

The sword-billed hummingbird is one of the largest hummingbirds and is a native of Andean South America. It is a little bird with a long beak and tail. It is an important pollinator because of its large beak's ability to get nectar inside blooms. Other hummingbird species are tiny and have variable-length bills.
