Claws of birds

  1. 1. Claws Of Birds A presentation on claws of birds…….
  2. 2. Wading Birds • WADING BIRDS. The long toes of herons, which spreads the bird's weight over a large surface area, facilitates walking on soft surfaces near the water's edge
  3. 3. Swimming Birds • SWIMMING BIRDS such as ducks have webbing between their toes for swimming. GULLS also have feet similar to these so they don't sink while walking in the soft sand or mud near the water's edge.
  4. 4. Perching Birds • PERCHING BIRDS (warblers, thrushes, wrens, etc.) have independent, flexible toes, with one pointing backwards, ideal for grasping perches. Why don't perching birds fall out of trees when they sleep?When perching birds sit, a tendon on the backside of the ankle automatically flexes locking their toes around the branch. With feet locked, sleeping birds don't fall. As the bird stands up its feet release.
  5. 5. Climbing Birds CLIMBING BIRDS have two toes forward and two Backwards for climbing. Example-Parrot
  6. 6. Birds Of Prey • BIRDS OF PREY such as hawks, eagles, and owls use large claws (called talons) to capture, kill, and carry prey with their feet.
  7. 7. Flightless Birds • Strong-legged flightless birds, like the cassowary, protect themselves by kicking with their powerful feet and sharp claws.
