The baby hummingbird that was featured in a July 8 post on the PAWS Blog is growing up fast. She has graduated to an outdoor cage in which she has been practicing her flight skills and building up her muscles. She has a longer bill and a much sleeker body than she did just one week ago.
If all goes well, the hummingbird should be ready to return to the wild in less than two weeks. In the meantime, she'll be honing the amazing flight abilities that she will need to survive after her release.
