Each hummingbird she catches gets a numbered tag. The birds are so tiny and delicate, Driver said she was afraid at first; but the information she gathers is helping us learn more about this unique creature. It is supplied to the US Fish & Wildlife Service. For example, data is gathered about the sex of the bird, and where it was banded. That way, the government can track where the bird goes and how long it lives. Driver hopes her efforts will help us learn more about the tiniest bird in the sky.
