Every January 5th, dozens of children in the United States wake up excited by the prospect of birdwatching. National Bird Day, now in its 14th year, is dedicated to the enjoying and preservation of our fine feathered friends. This year, organizers are encouraging people to take the “captive bird video pledge” and promise not to share videos of captive “pet” birds.

For those of you who can't or wont go out to bird watch, this list of birds with their babies is for you. Which one do you think is the cutest? Do you have any pictures of birds with their little ones? Vote, or post your own photos below!
