Barn owlets

A pair of barn owl owlets sit in their nest box high in the peak of a barn on our ranch in rural Douglas County near Roseburg, Ore., on Sunday, May 5, 2013. Barn owls are widespread and are found in most parts of the world. They are know by many names including white owl, demon owl, ghost owl, death owl, church owl, cave owl, monkey-faced owl, hobgoblin owl, and barnyard owl.
We put the nest box up last year after seeing the adult owls in the barn.  It's a great feeling to see the barn owls start a family.
