Cutie-Pie Baby Owls Seen At (Yes) Rice

Three precious baby owls were discovered on the Rice campus recently -- and it wasn't even freshman orientation!!! (Ha ha!!)

The Rufous Morphs owls are sometimes called Texas Orange owls, but obviously not at Rice. School photographer Tommy LaVergne captured these shots.
