Fledgling Osprey Uses the Wind to Test Its Wings

Warning! Test Flights in Progress

One fortunate day, my penchant for watching young birds grow up paid off big. While watching the Osprey nest located on the football field light stanchion, a couple of the oldest started testing their wings using the breeze that was coming upriver. Luckily, I had my long lens out and ready to shoot. It was very inspiring to watch them go from cautious to adventurous as the afternoon progressed.
