Two young screech owls

I got a call from my sister in law one day telling me to bring my camera and come to her house. When I got there, she took me to the backyard and pointed. There in the tree sat these two little owls. They were so fluffy and seemed unafraid of us watching them. It was hard to locate them at first due to all the leaves, but after arranging my camera, I was able to get this shot.
