A morning with the Spotted Owlets....

It was an NTP outing.... I accompanied Radha and Shreeram to Lalbagh this morning.

We did see a lot of interesting things,but I want to first share our morning tryst with One,Two, and Three...the Spotted Owlets!

We saw One first, on the Jacaranda tree...

Left and right, went the poses.

The Two flew into the hole in the tree-trunk (probably it is a nest)

From there, we got several looks:


Then the two flew up to sit side by side, though, of course, one of them was mooning us:

Then both decided to be rude:

But they were happy together, preening each other:

So of course, we circled round the tree to get a better view:

They looked adorable:

Then THREE also appeared, sitting on a branch:

We left them to themselves, very reluctantly indeed, these little feather-balls!
