Looking at the word, I can safely say that either the word is a verb or a noun based on its ending, “een.” Since we can’t really break this word down into smaller chunks, maybe we’ll just have to take a guess on its meaning based on similar words like, say, “prune”:
Clean up after oneself.
Definition and Pronunciation

of a bird : to groom with the bill especially by rearranging the barbs and barbules of the feathers and by distributing oil from the uropygial gland

I would use the word in a sentence as follows:
