In 100 Words: Learning (and Teaching) to Fly

Here’s how eagles learn to fly. When the baby eagle (eaglet) has fully developed wings, the mother hovers above the nest with a piece of food in her claws. She nurtures the curiosity and shows the eaglet that wings are for flying. Piece of food inspires the eaglet to try.

If this doesn’t work, eagle just throws the eaglets out of her nest. When the eaglet is falling, the eagle swoops under the baby and picks the baby on wings before throwing again till the eaglet starts flapping the wings and fly. Mother supports while the eaglet learns by doing.
