Photo: Stop the presses, we've got fluffy owlets

8 of 1651

Our photo of the day comes from San Luis Obispo County, California.

The world may be in the grips of a pandemic, but that doesn't mean spring is on hold ... as is so wonderfully illustrated by this photo taken by Sam McMillan of a great horned owl family. Look at those fluffy owlets; they're the baby birds we all need. Cornell Lab of Ornithology calls the great horned owl "the quintessential owl of storybooks," and we have to agree, cute babies and all.
