Burrowing Owls - owlettes in Florida

Meet the family.  4 babies and mom.
Dad was farther away watching from the distance.

This was my first sighting ever of seeing the young owlettes.
Thank you so much Holly

I thought this was an adult until we got closer to see an owlette on the post.

3 owlettes

Hissing like a snake. We were not close but they still practiced their calls.

Love the head tilts

The first night we got there after the golden hour.
Holly was calling me to let me know there were babies.
Me I was off with a gopher tortiose

One took off in front of the others.  I happened to click when he flew over the burrow.  Mom was not even concerned.
It was amazing

All open their eyes and look when a plane goes over

Mouth wide open

I am still in awe of these little guys
