Female Magnificent Takes a Long Drink, Shows Tongue

22 August 2016

This female Magnificent Hummingbird stopped by the Perky-Pet Feeder for a long drink. In between bouts of feeding, you can get a glimpse of its tiny tongue protruding from the beak. Recent research suggests that hummingbirds use their tongues as tiny pumps that allow the birds to quickly take-in nectar. Hummingbirds have flexible, grooved tongues that stay compressed when protruding from the bill in search of nectar. Once the tongue comes contact with a nectar source, the grooves expand and quickly load up with nectar that the bird can then lick up!
