Snapped in Angrigon, Montreal by Marie-Claude Paquette, these Eastern Screech Owls seem a little uncomfortable as they sit wedged in their nest.

Marie-Clause, 54, spotted the feathery family when she noticed one owlet peering out at her.

She said: “I noticed the nest and the baby owl looking out of the tree hole and I started to watch.

“There were two owlets there: one has finally left the nest but for the other one it’s just a matter of time.

“Also I was lucky to take shots of both mother and father owls – I need to say they are very caring parents.
