All four first spread their wings over the weekend, and now their parents are helping them to perfect their flying skills and teaching them to hunt. During that process, they will stay close to their nest.
This is the first fledging of chicks for falcon parents, Morela and Ecco.
The first egg was laid back on March 17.
