Start

Taking the Leap
One by one, baby robins jump from their nest. Each clumsy baby flaps and flutters its way to the ground. At last the baby has space to move. Running and flapping builds leg and wing strength. Baby can take short flights in just a few days. Its tail is still too short to be much help, but the feathers grow fast.
