Cute Michigan baby animals, we dare you to look away

Jun 17, 2013

There were four baby peregrine falcons nesting on the roof of University Hospital at the end of April. The University Record reports this is the third year in a row that two falcons nested on the hospital roof.

A contest was held to name the babies. Today, the people running the University of Michigan's Facebook page announced the winning names:

  • Maize,
  • Blue,
  • Woodson,
  • and Howard.

The images of the cute falcon babies got us wondering, 'what can be cuter than these things?'

Just look at how cute they are:

But are they cuter than red fox kits? What could be more adorable than a fox kit?

Moose calves are okay, too.

We'll throw one more in there, because who can say no to a cygnet?
