These guys are this years birds - so 1st winter plumage = beautiful colouring. You do get grey birds but these are usually found in places where the winters are colder

They are squinting a little bit yes. They tend to be very sleepy during the mid day hours and wake up and start pipping and hooting after around 4 as it gets dark

There is a little one yes. I work in an owl centre and these two are wild tawnies that were brought in by members of the public after being involved in two separate traffic accidents. We have four tawnies here at the moment. They're quite tough and if the bang isn't too bad and it's just concussion they tend to do really well. These two are going to be released in next week it so :)

A fabulous pair. Fabulous plumage. Are they in a barn or attic? Are they squinting from the daylight?
