This youngster was getting ready for its first flight. It had hopped from the nest to a branch 2 feet away and back the day before. Now it was on the edge of the nest trying to decide what to do next.

That's a very fun series. I wonder what finally gives them the courage to try!!
Thanks Terri. I guess it is the same thing that gets someone to bungie jump off the bridge.
Nice catch, to bad you didn't get the first flight but they might be there next year!
Thanks. The second day of flying was fun to watch. Short flights, about a minute long.
