Brand new eagle owls

We have two brand-spanking new Eurasian eagle owl chicks to feed and admire. As a preview of what's coming up, here are some pictures I took at a feeding last Thursday. The smiley guy up front is kind of a camera hog as you can see. He's really hamming it up, or just happy to have a full belly. Did you know that owls don't have crops?

I also took some video, so look for those later this week.

As a big owl fan, those are the cuitest I've ever seen.

I agree! That one in the front seems to be saying "I am the cutest owl in the whole world, worship me!"
