The Woodland Park Zoo proudly welcomed their first ever Tawny frogmouth hatchling last week. After a quick examination by zoo staff, the tiny cotton ball was quickly returned to the nest and its parents have been feeding it regularly.

Both mother and father frogmouth typically look after their young for the first month or so until the chick is ready to leave the nest. Currently parents and chick are off exhibit to give the new family some private time, but you can follow them at the Woodland Park Zoo's blog.
