Don't Eat Me!!!

Baby barn owls. I found them in an old pump shed that was supposed to be disconnected so the hissing sound coming from there was really weird. It would go on and off at night and sounded like water moving through the pipes. During the day, everything looked shut off and there were no noises. The next night I figured out what was making the noise. I took photos too.

    If you want to see live streaming of a barn owl nest with 4 owlets, check out "Molly the Owl" on Ustream. Here's the link:

    Molly's owlets are getting big and ready to leave the box. Here's another nest box, and the mom just laid six eggs recently!

    Thanks for this very amusing video. I have added it to my favorites. Also,I've been following Molly & McGee's brood; one owlet left the box as of 6/8/10. Lot's of fun!

    I think, if you watch closely, you will see that the owlet that pushed the other forward was a little peeved because the one he pushed kinda pushed him first. A brushback with the wing, so to speak. Love the video!

    That is one pesky brother, I'll tell ya, haaahaha. And after pushing (twice!!!) he sat there, wings sprawled with that look-WHAT?!! WHAT DID I DO? ARE YOU TELLING ME I DID SOMETHING WRONG? ARE YOU, ARE YOU?!
    I have 2 boys, I know that look well..

    aw, i love owls but know they'd never make good pets. maybe i'll just end up getting a barn and finding these guys in there, so cute!

    I luv this-especially the one getting scared of his own brother's face and going into attack mood! Sooo funny - I laugh every time I play it & that's a lot! Thanks so much! You are a good photographer.

    The one in the back is just asking for a fight. Notice how when he pushes the other owl, he crouches down and spreads his wings. He's in his "defense mode". Hehe

    But yeah, they're cute.

    Yea, I like how everyone is saying "Oh, look how the sibling is nudging the other to check out the camera" justify its cutness. WRONG! Owls are creepy and turn on each other if they have to. Cute my ass.
