Sleeping white and brown owls in a tree. There is a nest here and only one owl was visible when I was there. "These medium-sized owls have long, rounded wings and short tails, which combine with a buoyant, loping flight to give them a distinctive flight style. The legs are long and the head is smoothly rounded, without ear tufts. Barn Owls are pale overall with dark eyes. They have a mix of buff and gray on the head, back, and upperwings, and are white on the face, body, and underwings. When seen at night they can appear all white."
Sleeping in a nest about 20 feet up in a Palm tree. The tree is located in the Ramona grasslands on the property of the Wildlife Research Institute. These owls are wild and just happened to nest on the property.
