Over the hill and far away …….the “ugly chick” aka the moorhen

Next in this series on cute baby birds we have the not-so-cute (aww bless) moorhen chick.

Again, I saw these on a visit to WWT in Arundel, where there was an abundance of baby birds.

The baby moorhen is a funny looking animal, with feet that look way too large for their bodies, and scraggy patches waiting for feathers to grow. Watching them looking around for food was very funny too, as they kept loosing their balance and falling over!

In this image we can see the adult moorhen feeding an insect to the chick.
