These magnificent birds were spotted in my neighbors' fruit tree, and later, in our aspens. We have no idea what kind they are, and assume these are the "kids"
We guessed this was the dad
The "mom" is hiding to the left, the "kids" in the middle, and the dad in the lower right.
It's kind of a funny story, Mrs. Olsen, my neighbor told me to come look at these cute little owls she had been looking at all morning. "Oh, how amazing" I said, and then was like "Oh, there's another one, and another one!" She had only noticed the two kids, and hadn't even seen the mom and dad all morning. Haha. I immediately got my camera and took a million pictures. Isla thought this was the greatest thing she had ever seen. When Tim got home he couldn't believe we had been so lucky to see these fuzzy creatures. He explained how rare this was. Rare or not, we relished in the moment...one I will never forget. The owls have moved on to bigger and better trees, but we are thankful they stopped by for a visit!
