This is a video from a nest-cam in Estonia capturing a young osprey's first flight. He kind of crash-lands in the closest tree. Hey, you gotta start somewhere. If I was a bird I'd probably never leave the nest, I'd just hang out up there crying with my mouth open waiting for my mom to come throw up some food for me. Kind of like I do now except we live in a house instead of a nest and she makes me chew my own food. I haven't left though, that's my point.
Keep going for the video, as well as a bonus video of the bird returning for lunch.
Thanks to Jess, who's just happy he didn't fall like a pillowcase full of bricks.
