Here’s How 30 Baby Birds Look Compared To Their Adult Versions

Published 5 years ago

Most of us have probably seen baby chickens or ducks before but what about other baby birds? We’re used to them just sort of being there in their adult form without really giving too much thought about how their babies look. And maybe there’s a reason for that.

Turns out baby birds look almost nothing like their adult versions. Quite the opposite, in fact – until they fully grow out their feathers, they look like shabby, oddly proportioned “ugly ducklings” that you couldn’t even tell are related to the adult birds. Luckily, that phase passes rather quickly and soon enough we get blessed with the majestic grown-up birds we know so well. Check out the amazing bird glow-ups in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
