Like all good things even Baby Bird Week must come to an end. And though we are sad to see seven days of adorable baby birds come to an end we can be happy that at least some of them will grow up to adulthood and make more baby birds.

But just in case you missed some of the many Baby Bird Week posts we thought we would share with you each and every Baby Bird Week blog post here in one spot. Click away, baby-birdophile!

Baby Bird Week Roundup

Not bad, right? Stay tuned for more great content and, after some rest from this frenetic week of baby birds, another theme week…

Thanks to all of the Beat Writers who contributed content to Baby Bird Week, to Nick Sly and Mervyn Van Rooyen who contributed photo essays, to all of our readers who clicked through to each and every baby bird, and to Stephanie Chung who provided us with yet another great design for a theme week. Baby Bird Week would have been a sad affair indeed if it had been just me and Mike trying to put it together.


Baby Bird Week is our celebration of the young, the cute, the adorable, the twee. We certainly spend enough time on adult birds here on 10,000 Birds so we figured it would only make sense to fawn over the fuzzy bundles of fluff that grow up to become the objects of our fascination. Whether you seek out waterfowl, songbirds, or seabirds we will have baby birds to match your obsession.

Baby Bird Week will run from 15-21 July, Sunday until Saturday. Make sure to check back every day or even multiple times a day to keep up with all the baby bird goodness!
