Baby Owls Don't Like Getting Their Photo Taken

To my delight, a pair of my local resident Great Horned Owls did end up having babies. I thought for sure they skipped having babies this year, but it looks like they suprised me with 2 babies!  I am hoping to be able to watch them grow up before the leaves really fill in and the bugs get bad. In just a week, they are starting to get darker feathers on their heads. (First 2 photos) The 3rd photo was taken a week prior, the first time I saw them. As they grow, they will sit up more, as well as move onto nearby branches. It will be a fun 10-12 weeks watching them grow up.
