Help with lemon juicer

I received a metal juicer shaped like a bird for my birthday and am not sure how to use it. The back part lifts up and has a row of little teeth toward the front, then the juice is supposed to pour out the beak. I tried to use it with a lemon to make chicken piccata, but the lemon kept falling out. I'm guessing I was trying to make it harder than it's supposed to be! Anyone know what I'm talking about and know the proper way to use this thing?

juicer

I don't think my Mac computer is understanding the "add image" button. Tried to attach the photo, don't know if it worked. They show a photo of one at epinion.com/cooking. They call it a Bird Lemon Squeezer. I think maybe I'm trying to put too big of a piece of lemon in it might be the problem.

I think it might be made to squeeze lemon wedges under the tail (rind side up) then pour the juice out through the beak.
