Well, it may or may not have been its very first but it was certainly one of its first. We found this natural nest with two young ones in it. With a stiff headwind blowing, one of them decided it was a prime opportunity to test its wings. Three times in a row it rose above the nest, barely having to flap thanks to the wind. It was a lot of fun to watch. Taken near Grand Lake, Colorado.
