Baby Birdorable: Barn Owl

If you think our Birdorable birds are cute as adults, what about when they are babies? Below are some baby photos (shared via Flickr Creative Commons) of the Barn Owl. Barn Owls are cavity nesters. They use a variety of structures, including natural sites like tree cavities, cliffs, rocky outcrops, as well as a huge range of man-made structures. Barn Owls will use nest boxes, too. There are some popular nestcams set up in established Barn Owl nests, including Owl Channel, Mel & Sydney, and Audubon Starr Ranch Barn Owls. With their heart-shaped faces and their super-fluffy appearance, baby Barn Owls may look a bit goofy, but we think they are cute, too! What do you think?
