(KSL News) -- Three baby eaglets are spreading their wings for the first time just off the shores of the Great Salt Lake.

The babies are nearly three months old and just learning how to fly in the Legacy Nature Preserve, just southeast of the lake.

One eaglet already flew the coop, but hasn't quite made it back up to the nest yet.

The Department of Natural Resources is taking tours to the site to watch the babies as they brave their first flights.

Bob Walters, Watchable Wildlife: "It's a lot like people learning to ride a bike. After a while you don't care if Mom and Dad are watching you. You're thinking, 'Yeah, I'm pretty good at this."

The family of eagles is expected to stay at this site until July.

If you'd like to reserve a spot at no cost to view the eaglets, contact Bob Walters at 801-538-4771.
