The owlets seem to be at an age where they are primed to play...especially together. They were running around on the floor, seemingly looking for trouble, so I put some toys into their aviary. They include a fake lemming, a fake mouse wrapped with colored rope, a little stuffed moose, a big stuffed bear/dog thing, a giggle ball that laughs when jarred, a leather glove, and maybe one or two other things.
The owlets seem to like to play at dawn and dusk, and this is a lengthy video that shows you some of their play behavior. They are learning to pounce and drag things, and probably even caching.
