    Usually panting means to hot, did she get overheated?

    Is she okay now?

    How was she laying on the ground?
    On her side? On her stomach? etc.

    Sometimes they will just lay in the sun with a wing stretched out. It is possible she just got too hot especially at that young of an age. Hope she is ok ! Bringing her in should help alot and lots of water!!! Good luck!![​IMG]
