Baby Birdorable: Jackdaw

February 20th, 2012 in Baby Birds, Crows 2 comments

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 Jackdaw. Jackdaws are part of the corvid family; they are related to crows, magpies and jays. Jackdaws nest in sheltered areas, from tree cavities to chimneys to cliff-sides. Typically 4 to 5 eggs are laid, and incubation takes about 18 days. Baby Jackdaws fledge about four weeks after hatching.
