Our burrowing owl babies

OK, as promised here are the pics of our baby burrowing owls. There a 5 babies this year, and they chatter constantly...when they are awake...they fall asleep standing up sometimes and fall over...too funny. They don't mind people, they'll lick your hand if you hold it out to them. They are a native species to South Florida, protected still, thankfully. And we just love watching them. And the pictures are clickable to a larger size. Enjoy!

See the frog "lunch"?

And we steal food from each others mouth too!

aren't they cute!
