When you're family, isn't it mostly about hanging out? That's easy for burrowing owls. Mom and Dad raise an average of 9 owlets in a crowded underground nest without privacy or compliance to building codes. When the
kids leave the rambunctious bunker one by one, they don't go too far too fast - just up and out the hole to take up individual positions perched on the dirt pile beside their burrow, staring. These siblings get along pretty well, but must be glad for a little personal space - yet not SO much that when a parent flies home with a mouse, any of them miss a morsel.
