Within just a few hours of hatching, itty bitty Piping Plover babies have to stumble from the nest to feed themselves. That’s the price of being a precocial animal. You might remember this from such posts as Goin’ Rogue, or The Legend of Itty The Bitty.
But here Tufters accidentally kicks the eldest of his recent brood out of the nest bowl before he is actually ready to go rogue. Adorableness ensues as he tries to find his itty bitty legs on the Beach.
Enjoy Goin’ Rogue II: The Next Generation (the sequel to Goin’ Rogue) in HD and go fullscreen. Enjoy these precious few moments of pure discovery as this chick discovers what we already know: that life on the Beach is the greatest life on Earth.
