As strange as it may seem the word 'wry' means bent, and the word 'bill' means beak. That is why this bird is know as the Wrybill (bent-beak). Some people may not know that wrybills are the only birds that have a beak that is bent to the right.
Did you know wrybills eat larvae and insect eggs found under stones? They use their bent beaks to find their food and dig it up.
Have you heard wrybills are endangered species? They only live in the south island of New Zealand. There are less than 5000 wrybills left.
As strange as it may seem, the wrybills' predators include ferrets, weasels and wild cats.
