Thousand Words: Taking a first flight

 

Thousand Words is a photo series featuring images that Niagara Now and The Lake Report finds to be particularly compelling — ones that tell a story words can’t properly describe. Sometimes there may be several photos, other times there might only be one. A picture is worth a thousand words.

In this series:

A fledgling American robin pokes its head out of its nest. Soon the robin will leave the nest and take its first flight. For now, it waits for its parents to come feed it. Dad is never far off.

Father robin calls to its youngster, encouraging it to take its first flight. The fledgling is now out of the nest and walking around in the branches of the pine tree. It flaps its wings and calls out to dad.
