It is the most important event in the life of a seagull when he is to take his first flight,most vital for his survival.
Summary of the text The seagull is to fly for the 1 st time. He is scared to take off. His two brothers and sister have already done their 1 st flight. The seagull is encouraged by the family in many ways. He watches his family flying, hunting and enjoying flying but fails to join them. He lacks confidence. He is scared of height. He feels that his wings are not strong enough to make him fly. This is a natural reaction while doing any activity for the first time.

In order to catch it he makes his maiden attempt to fly.
