To celebrate Father’s Day, we’ve selected some of our favorite photos showing the importance of fatherhood in the lives of birds. Enjoy these touching moments that reveal how many young birds depend on Dad for warmth, safety, and a good meal. Special thanks to each of the photographers for sharing these glimpses of family life. Happy Father’s Day!
