*Some helpful notes:
An explaination of naming conventions for baby birds.
Chick - A most frequently used term for a baby bird. A chick is a bird that's still relatively young.
Baby birds at different ages:
Hatchling - A bird that's no more than a few days. Typically naked with closed eyes.
Nestling - After a few days, a hatchling becomes a nestling. A nestling is usually covered in down,
and is completely dependent on its parents for food and does not leave the nest.
Fledgling - When ready to leave the nest, it becomes a fledgling.
Occasionally found on the ground near a nest, hopping awkwardly.
A fledgling has most of its flight feathers, but it's still learning to fly.
Its parents will usually take care of it.
The next four stages are juvenile, immature, subadult, and adult.
