In a tweet this week, Professor Michael Lens introduced the world to a group of baby owls who'd hatched from a nest just outside his colleague's window a few weeks ago.
While the chance to get an up-close look at these adorable birds growing up might seem like a wholly positive thing, it comes with one slightly unnerving caveat: They can stare right back.
As the birds have gotten older, they've evidently begun directing their curiosity through the window — fixing a wide-eyed, unflinching gaze on people trying to go about their business inside this building in the Luskin School of Public Affairs. It's apparently made work a little difficult, as Lens noted:
"I. Just. Can’t. Even."
