With a multitude of predators nearby, like hawks and owls, a hummingbird with a dominant allele for a long beak and a hummingbird with a recessive allele for a short beak overproduce
The offspring of the two hummingbirds either inherit a long beak or a short beak.
The environment of the hummingbirds consists of mostly flowers of which they drink the nectar out of.
A hummingbird with a shorter beak can't reach as far into the flower to get the nectar out, so the short beaked hummingbirds struggle to survive.
The short beaked hummingbird population starts to die off, leaving only the long beaked birds.
The long beaked hummingbird population starts to reproduce, leaving the hummingbird population with only long beaked hummingbirds.
