A flamingo eats with its head upside down.

It first sticks its head in the water upside down, and then it sweeps its head side to side to collect food.

Its oddly shaped bill filters dirt and other inedible objects from food with the help of hairy projections called mandibles. Their diet typically consists of small organisms such as brine shrimp and algae, but this may vary depending on the size and shape of the bill.
