Owls at dusk - a77 + 70-300G

These were challenging shots for me - luckily the owls stay put and I had a couple of attempts on different evenings to get it better. The light was pretty dim (these have been brightened considerably) and they were very high in a tree - required full extension to 300mm and heavy cropping. The solution was tripod + cable release + multi-frame noise reduction (from ISO selection) and cooperative owls that held still for the continuous shooting.

I could use help with the ID - thinking they could be young great horned owls?
