Blackbird chick

Blackbird fledglings really look like little chickens as their tail is amazingly short. And indeed, for a few days after fledging, they are unable to fly and must hide at near-ground level to survive. This is the most vulnerable period of their life and mortality is high. Credit: Yalakom
