English term or phrase: "a puffling"
"A puffling is a young puffin. By the time puffin chicks are ready to leave their burrows, they are called pufflings."
Beatriz
pollo
Explanation:
No sé el término que se utilizará para los frailecillos en particular, pero nombres genéricos para crías de aves pueden ser: pollo, avecilla o pajarillo. Según el diccionario CLAVE, pollo es la cría de un ave (aunque matiza "específicamente de la gallina"). Luego están los específicos, como pichón, perdigón, cigoñino, pavezno o aguilucho. ¡Buena suerte!
