Cute Overload :D
This tiny Spoon-billed Sandpiper chick is the only species of bird born with a spoon shaped beak (thank you BirdLife International).
Fuzzy blorpness is here to feed you your medicine.
Make. My. Day. ;)
If his spoon beak was silver he could star in that old sitcom with Ricky Schroder.
I am dying to flick that sleepy out of his right eye.
I can’t help but bow down to that evil look he has going on.
“I’m not happy about this” :D
Not impressed until I see a bill shaped like a spork… :D
*books next available flight/ ticket to the beach areas of Russia or Myanmar…*
*pokes a few airholes into an empty suitcase for the return trip….*
Your comment is win!
Okay. How does that bill even work? I wanna see a pic with it’s mouth open.
That little sandpiper is just adorable, but he’s not the only type of bird born with a spoon-shaped bill. Check out Spoonbill on Wikipedia: “Spoonbills are a group of large, long legged wading birds in the family Threskiornithidae, which also includes ibises.”
