After seeing a photo of an owl fledgling this afternoon, one thing led to another, and I found some baby bird photos that I want to share with you this week. Be prepared for cuteness overload! 🙂
Baby Peacock, Woodpecker, and Flamingo
I have seen many photos of adult peacocks, woodpeckers, and flamingos, but I do not think I have seen any baby photos of these birds. I fixed that problem!

I have seen baby ducks and owls before, but I liked the pose of the ducks in the first photo and the mother owl and baby owl together in the second shot.

No explanation is needed for these photos. 🙂
