It may be a dreary Monday, but here is some excellent aviary news to brighten your day: We've just received photos of baby birds hatched at the Bronx Zoo's Wildlife Conservation Society. The roseate spoonbill chicks are pink- and white-feathered—see, doesn't their plumage look soft? They get their name from their flattened, utensil-like beaks.
You can see the little guys at the zoo's Aquatic Bird House.
