During my time spent on tumblr perusing photos of cute baby animals, I’ve seen a lot of photosets where a photo of a very cute plush doll was misidentified as a real baby owl. And I happen to think the real thing is fantastically adorably awkward and deserves to be cooed over too. So here is a photoset of actual baby owls for your viewing pleasure.

This bird landed in a tree right next to the trail, close to where I was standing. It looked around and preened a little bit, and then it flew off.
