Hi, We are feeding some Rainbow Lorikeets apple on our balcony. One of the regular ones appears to be having trouble eating and it looks like it has a swollen and split tongue at the end. What can we do to help it eat and will it be o.k? We are not sure what has heppened to it. Please help!

I am sorry, but Dr B can not help you with this bird. You will need to trap the bird and take it to an avian vet for treatment. You are sweet to try to help this bird.
