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!

Perfect spot for a swallow and her brood. Not many cliffs or hillsides with openings any more.

They usually nest on house walls, close to the roof.

Spring Robins

Don Guild

This reminds me of a Robin that laid her eggs on my porch a few years ago. Whenever she was gone I would climb a ladder and take photos of the progress of chicks after the eggs hatched . It was a great experience . The mother returned and caught me on the ladder, she raised bloody hell. I quickly went into the house. A few days later the chicks were gone. They must have flown the coup.

I absolutely love swans. They are so beautiful and so graceful. I didn't know until recently that they carried their little ones under their wings. That made them even more beautiful to me.

Starlings drive me crazy every year because they gobble up all of the bird food at the feeders until it's gone, even with the suet! They're hogs! This nice pic makes them look a lot prettier than they are! If only they would share....
