Baby owls

This pic is of the nestlings from the Great Horned Owl I have followed for the last 2 years. Though only 2 neslings are visible in the top pic, there actually are 3 nestlings but the youngest (and smallest) is hidden by the other two. Owl nestlings are cute very fuzzy, especially right after they hatch.

The nestling on the right side in the pic shows this fuzziness well while it's older sibling shows a progression to juvenal plumage. It won't be long before the oldest nestling fledges. Do double-click this pic to enlarge it for a super close-up and crisp view. SeEtta
