Baby Saw Whet Owls and Saddleback Caterpillar by Psithyrus Baby Saw Whet Owls and Saddleback Caterpillar by Psithyrus
Two inquisitive baby northern saw whet owl chicks are pondering whether a colorful spiny caterpillar would make a good snack. The older chick thinks his little brother is getting a little too close to the intimidating critter. They must be thinking "This thing is pretty neat". Please, enjoy these little bundles of avian fluffiness.

All the best,

Blair

What a LOVELY art work!  I am glad I found it too.  Someone shared a version of this on my timeline that had been shared by the Sociedad Argentiana de Horticultura, so I wanted to find the original!
Really beautiful rendering of the downy feathers, great use of light and shade and expression of the owl is perfect as they are SO curious at that age!

Blair, saw a photo tonight of Northern saw whet owls and decided these were my new favorite owl.  Looked for images, loved this one & thought... hmmm... that name looks familiar! Whoa! It's you! Beautiful! Hello from me to your honey bee, Miss Pat

I love the detail of the owlets' fluff! It looks so loose and wavy. I had no idea Saw-whet owlets looked so much like Spectacled owls!
