 I have many hummingbirds that come to my feeder here in West Seattle. This year one of the young birds has a problem. Her tongue has always appeared to be a little extended beyond the end of her beak. Now her tongue is well beyond the end of her beak perhaps over an inch and shows a kink in it where she bends it in order to get into the feeder. Is there any hope that this bird will be able to survive with this condition and has anyone else come across this before? Thank you.
