The truly interesting thing about the Australian pelicans beak is the way it expands - like a shopping bag- to contain it's catch. As we say here: it's beak holds more than it's belly can.

The Kiwi is the only bird with nostrils at the end of its long thin beak

There's a very strange-beaked eagle that eats water snails. Its beak looks like a corkscrew and is naturally designed to go into the snail's shell and extract it.

The shoebill has weirdly human eyes ... creepy. The avocet looks like somebody chopped part of his face off.

Like any bird with a odd looking beak, they need a way process their food. The beak is the beginning of the chain of events that occur after their prey is caught. No matter what one says about beak or the bill, the design works. Why mess w the blue print.

My father taught me a rhyme about the pelican when I was a little girl. It went : A funny old bird is the pelican; his beak can hold more than his belly can.
