Two young owlets were hunting near a water ditch. The first one had been preening and suddenly stretched all its feathers, as if to say: "It's hot! I have both a parasol and a fan." The other one was calling softly but with a very open mouth, looking like it was singing an aria. These owls usually have feathers on their eyelids; this young one still has pink lids.
