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!

that's a Mourning Dove, I believe. They are some of the dumbest nesters. They have no natural predators. I had one that kept laying eggs on the front porch with a "nest" made of 3 or 4 blades of grass just lying there!

I glad my Sunbirds have their nest outside my door, not on the car. However I get plenty of green ants & huntsmen spiders on my car, so they would get home-delivered meals

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.
