OH WHAT THE EVERLOVING FUCK
I WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO SLEEP AGAIN WITHOUT HAVING NIGHTMARES OF THESE HORRIBLE MONSTERS
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

(Random ornithologist attack!)
Hi there! Actually, the reason these baby finches have such weird mouths is pretty cool - vidua finches are a family of bird that exclusively lay their eggs in the nests of estrildid finches. To defend themselves, estrildid finches have evolved these mouth patterns so that the host parents can check the gaps of their babies and distinguish which ones are actually their own, and which belong to the vidua finches (although, since each species of vidua finch specializes in just one species of estrildid finch, their gape patterns tend to look very similar).

Ohh, that’s awesome! Thanks! I think I’m still going to have nightmares, though…
