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”
Not impressed until I see a bill shaped like a spork…
*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.”
