AWKWARD BABY BIRDS!

26 Apr

I present to you, AWKWARD BABY BIRDS!

This isn’t just another list of cute birds.

This post required actual research (take note Buzzfeed).

I don’t know anything about birds, so identifying birds is a nightmare.

Plus most times, when you see a picture of a bird on the internet, the caption just reads “CUUUuuuuUUuTE!” which is NOT helpful if you are trying to figure out the species.

Enjoy (This list was a pain to assemble).

This guy lives in Central/South America and will only grow up to look weirder.

Here’s another picture of a baby great egret.

During my search for birds, I learned that egrets are a type of heron. I also found that ALL baby herons are awkward. All of them: Baby Night Heron, Baby Green Herons, and Baby Tri-Colored Heron (with poop on his head) to name a few.

 

Baby Black Browed Albatross (Baby “Thalassarche melanophrys“)

If you search for “Baby Albatross”, all the pictures are adorable and awkward (here’s one of a baby albatross that barfed all over himself). This is basically a fantastic “before and after” picture. This scraggly little chick is going to become a beautifully flawless bird.

AArgh. He’s so cute. This little guy was the inspiration for the whole post. He’s my favorite little bird. Here are more pictures if you don’t believe me (how dare you). Running birds!, baby bird with dad, free ride.
