Audubon's Birds

Challenge #6 in the Eye of the Beholder series. Hosted by wrosenthal.
Challenge has finished
John James Audubon painted birds in vivid color to emphasize their behavior, physical characteristics, and field marks. Often typical habitat was included. Audubon’s renderings were not ‘realistic’ nature photographs. For this challenge you should emulate Audubon and submit photos of one or several birds in a group that emphasize and even exaggerate their color and markings. See additional rules and examples below. Judges should have Audubon's folios in mind while evaluating the entries.

Little Owl chicks are so curious and this is a great advantage for a photographer after placing himself at the right spot... :) The picture was taken in nature. Those three are Little Owl chicks from Israel.
