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 European Goldfinch. European Goldfinches nest in early spring, unlike their American counterparts. They lay 3-7 eggs in a cup-shaped nest, and incubation lasts 10-14 days. Babies fledge at approximately 2 weeks after hatching.
