Birds with Long Tongues


Hummingbird sticking it's tongue out.


Red-bellied Woodpecker - stretching his tongue to reach the peanut butter.
I think most woodpeckers have long tongues like this.
I think it's pretty cool!!

I believe that every person has uniqueness - something that nobody else has.

Very cool. I've seen the hummingbird tongue in photos before but never the woodpecker. Nicely captured.

I had no idea! Kerri, your photos are wonderful teachers. Do you just say, "Now stick your tongue out and hold still?"

I knew that hummingbirds had long tongues but now I also know that woodpeckers do too. Great pictures.

Fabulous! I love observing birds doing what they do and Hummingbirds are one of my favorites. They are strong yet delicate all in one tiny, little body. If they are protecting their young, they will even swoop down to warn a human! Very intriguing little birds!

Beautiful photos!
