I can understand why it would be very useful
sometimes to have a beak. Myself, I would go for something like
the beak a Pileated Woodpecker is born to. On an off moment I would then
be able to relieve frustration by reducing bits of wood to shards,
without ever risking damage to my hands.
I could also use such a beak to
decimate the population of the wood boring Bumble Bee that are beginning to
reduce garden fence posts to structures a sea sponge might be proud of.
Holes and passages, corridors and conference chambers, excavated to such a
point that I am well on the way to believing that the garden has become a
Mecca for Bumble Borer culture. And to think I once thought chasing
Bumble Borers with tennis rackets bad form.
