    Yoga Osprey style

    I have been following the progress of this little baby; he is the last one to leave the nest after incessant calls from his siblings and parents to fly.
    He finally decided to try out his wings and flew from his nest to the nearest pylon. A successful flight albeit a bit wobbly. He was really trying hard to stay in the air.
    After this tiring flight, he rested for 3 hours and because that pylon had a metal topping, his feet got hot, so he kept moving one leg up and rest on the other, then reverse the process when it got too hot. Funny thing is that he looked like he was doing Yoga, amusing postures and expressions!
    He took his second flight shortly after that and managed to do 3 complete circles before landing in the nest. His siblings joined him there and waited for dad to bring the food.
    Sushi was delivered shortly after that.
    One of them, the eldest, attempted a pathetic landing in the water, he was trying to catch a fish, unsuccessfully I might add, and he sort of floated comically in the water before deciding that this was not a good thing, and he flew off.
    It is quite interesting to watch their behavior at this tender age, now starts the learning process of how to fish by the parents, another saga … but this is another story...
