Flamingos
Actually their heads are not upside down, they are sieving small organisms from the water, so they angle their beaks to be able to take in the organism-rich water into their beaks, for feeding. Flamingos are a type of wading bird in the genus Phoenicopterus, the only genus in the family Phoenicopteridae.
