Baby Spoon-Billed Sandpipers Are a Spoonful of Cute

Here's a video of some adorable Spoon-billed Sandpiper chicks recently hatched at the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust Slimbridge Wetland Centre in Gloucestershire, UK. The chicks are a part of a conservation breeding mission designed to keep the Spoon-billed Sandpiper from immediate extinction. This particular group of chicks are only the second flock to ever be bred in captivity. Four more eggs are expected to hatch in the next few days, bringing the total number of birds in the flock to thirty.
