From Summer 2010 - Ringed and ready to be returned to the nest.
No interactions present.
are just really, really cute. I know from past experience that they can be a bit, well, antisocial, but nonetheless...
They are so so cute, never seen them before, specially 3 of them posing together. Thank you for lovely shot.
Thanks for the comments - My ringing trainer maintains many nest boxes around the area, including a number that are used by Barn Owls. This was my first close encounter with a brood and I was surprised as to how placid they were. There were four in total; the three shown together in the top left photo plus the larger bird in the photo underneath.
