It's a family of five. FIVE!!!!

See? Mum, Dad and three babies. I took this photo hunkered down among the oats (sorry Mr Reilly, I stuck to the tracks I swear).

Update: I've been thinking about names. The collective noun for owls is a 'parliament', so it seems only right to name the dad George (after George Clinton). My dad used to tell stories about Francie the owl when I was little, so that's what we'll call the mum. As for the chicks, last night I was introduced to the story of 'Owl Babies' and, seeing as the three chicks are steps and stairs just like the characters in the story, we'll call them (from biggest to smallest) Sarah, Percy and Bill
