Pigeon beak

In Bologna last week I was eating a sandwich in the Cathedral Square watching a pigeon attack some edam rind with great dexterity and endeavour. I watched it flick the rind over and over again to loosen the cheese.
That evening whist eating a plate of tagliatelle with my fork I thought how helpful it would be if pigeons increased the number of prongs from one (beak) to four.
