BEDFORD, Ind. -- What better way to spend the cold days indoors than watching a nest of adorable baby barn owls cuddling to stay warm?

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources's webcam has a 24-7 live feed in a DNR-built nest box inside a barn in southern Indiana. 

The owls have nested each year since 2009 and typically lay eggs in March or April, with chicks hatching in April or May. 

This year, however, four chicks also hatched in early November!

You can watch them cuddle, feed and just be absolutely adorable on the live camera feed below. 

In April of this year, the barn owl pair in Lawrence County produced seven eggs and five of them successfully hatched. 

The Barn Owl is a state-endangered species. In 2015, Indiana DNR said only 10 barn owl nests were reported statewide. 

You can also watch the live feed here.

You can donate to the Nongame Fund to increase nest box sites and help more than 750 non-game and endangered species throughout Indiana.
