Baby Birdorable: Blackbird

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 Blackbird. Common Blackbirds live throughout Europe and parts of north Africa and east Asia. They are thrushes - related to the American Robin. Female Blackbirds construct cup-shaped nests in evergreens or other similar vegetation. Three to five eggs are laid and hatching occurs after about 13 days of incubation. The baby birds fledge at approximately 14 days after hatching.
