Great Horned Owlettes

After an invigorating conversation about sightings of wildlife, the  park staff  kindly alerted me to the location of two owlettes. I went to look for them and was thrilled to find them. Their eyes are so piercing and the white fluff is either down or the floating fluff that comes from the poplars at this time of year or a combination of both. I want to protect them from harassment so am not saying exactly where I saw them. The branches were in the way except when there was a strong gust of wind, apologies for the poor quality.
