Adorable baby owls spotted hiding in a hole in a tree
These adorable baby owls were spotted poking their head out from the middle of a tree.
The little owls are hidden beneath their mum’s feathers – they seem like they might be getting a bit too big for their nest.
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.
“I enjoyed watching this family and I especially loved their faces – they’re so funny.
“I’m glad I was able to make some nice shots.
“I’m fond of photography and I’ve been doing it for about 5 years.
“I’m an amateur photographer and I love photographing animals and landscapes.”
