Long-eared Owls almost fully grown

It looked like today was going to be a wash-out with heavy rain from 8:30 onwards but it brightened up mid-afternoon so I decided to check on the progress of the Long-eared Owl chicks. Luckily all three were together and they are looking much more adult like, although there is clearly an age difference between all three. They are just starting to grow the 'ears' and the down on the chest is starting to feather. 
Fantastic birds and the encounter made up for the wet start.
