Suffering From Agression

Not many birds are more territorial than our local Annas hummingbirds.  The photo below shows one result of that aggression.  This poor little female has obviously ran into something and bent her beak badly on the tip.  I watched her for some time and it was obvious she was unable to retract her tongue all the way also.  Although she was still able to feed at the nectar feeders she would be unable to catch bugs and insects to feed any young she might have.  Sad ....
