Conclusion:

The Balancing Bird has its centre of Gravity located at the tip of the Beak. The Centre of Gravity (also called the Centre of Mass) is a special point on an Object. It is the point at which the Mass of the Body is perfectly balanced. It might seem strange that the Bird is perfectly balanced at the Beak location. But, this is because the Bird is designed this way. The wings are extended in front of the Beak far enough, and made heavy enough, to balance the weight of the Bird behind the Beak.
