Baby Birdorable: American Avocet

If you think our Birdorable birds are cute as adults, what about when they are babies? Below are some baby photos (shared via Flickr) of the American Avocet. American Avocets are ground nesters, laying their eggs in a simple scrape which may be lined with grass or other materials. 3-4 eggs are laid; chicks are downy and able to walk shortly after hatching.
