Young Western Screech Owl fledgling--more still pics

I took these pics of the young Western Screech Owl fledgling this morning with my Canon xti dslr camera (with my 400 mm lens and 1.6 multiplier for not having a full frame camera I have the equivalent of about 640 mm zoom). The top pic is, of course, very cute as the little owl peeks over the crook of the tree at me.
The little owl appears to be behaving 'coyly' in the middle pic though really it was just sneaking a peak at this big creature that makes a lot of clicking noise (with my dslr camera). The bottom pic shows how this little owl looks like most of the time as it stays hidden behind the foliage. SeEtta
