The four amigos

A family of wild week-old barn owl owlets look out from their nest box high in the peak of a barn on a farm near Oakland in southwestern Oregon on Sunday, May 1, 2016.
When hunting is good, breeding pairs of barn owls can hatch more than one clutch in a season. When rodent populations are low the owlets will fight for survival and push their smaller siblings out of the nest.
