Owl cubs

This is a photo of tree burrowing owl (Athene cunicularia) cubs. They are a small, long-legged owl found throughout open landscapes of North and South America, and those ones live on the campus of University of Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil. Unlike most owls, burrowing owls are often active during the day.
