Petchaburi Owls

I found these three immature Spotted Owlets in the Khao Look Chang area in Petchaburi. The adults were refusing to feed them in the nesting hole but sitting on adjacent branches with food, encouraging them to fly out and get it. None of them seemed keen to go!

Great shot , Geoff!
Cute little characters. Still lacking the confidence to take the jump...

It reminds me of a little spotted owlet I saw last February in Huai Kha Khaeng. Everyday sitting in front of his/ her hole, as a guard. Though I did not get the chance to wait for some closer shots.
It usually popped back into the hole when I would open the door of the car.
