17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Parliament of owlets - Badlands NP

Driving along the prairie dog towns of the Badlands NP, we noticed a mama owl watching over a hole. As we saw something small pop out of the hole she was watching, we noticed more and more owlets coming up. We believe this final picture is of the entire parliament. So adorable!
