Do birds have teeth?

Some chicks (young birds) have a tooth called an egg tooth which falls off when they crack the eggshell and hatch.

Birds do not have teeth, although some species of geese have tooth-like serrations called 'tomia' which run along the outside of the top and bottom of their bills, and look very much like teeth.
