Resetting the Trap

After Nancy takes the hummingbird out of the trap, she must reset the trap. She needs two hands to reset the trap, so she very gently places the tiny bird inside a cloth bag and holds the bag in her teeth.

Resetting Trap
She instantly places the hummingbird inside this cloth bag and resets the trap. She holds the bag in her teeth while she uses her hands to reset the trap.
Once the trap is reset, Nancy carefully clips the bag for a moment while she gets everything ready to band it.
