While researching adorable ways other species show affection (scouring the internet for heartwarming pictures iS research!), I learned that owls often stand close to their mates and lean on each other affectionately. Aww. The Northern Saw-Whet owls in this picture (courtesy of Kathy and Sam) are young and most likely siblings, not three-way mates. Still so cute.
