If you think a small baby flamingo desperately trying to adult sounds adorable, congratulations. You are a genius and you are absolutely correct.
Here’s the little bird in question. It’s currently living at Pittsburgh’s National Aviary, where it is enchanting visitors and the internet alike by being 1) fluffy and 2) extremely leggy.
And there’s more! Twitter user @celesse, who visited the aviary this week, posted a few delightful photos of the flamingo learning to stand on one leg, as is flamingo tradition.
The little bird even has a stuffed flamingo friend in the background, just in case you weren’t already filled with joy re: the miracle of new life.
You’ll get to adult flamingo-hood soon enough, smol friend. In the meantime, please enjoy being a kid! No taxes.
