Trapping the Hummingbird

Nancy keeps watch over her traps. At last a hummingbird flies into one and starts to feed. That's when Nancy presses her remote control, which makes the cage door close. The hummingbird is inside! To get it out, she reaches in through a special door, which has a sleeve into it as fine as a nylon stocking, so she can capture the hummingbird without it flying away.
