If anyone working in offices in this University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) building get a strange sense that they are being watched, it’s probably true.

After all, people that are spying on you are hardly being covert about it.

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.”

Soon, Lens’ tweet gained a lot of attention, and others began commenting on the young owls.

Affairs to find out more about those little feathery Peeping Toms, but received no response right away.

According to a post from earlier this year, the birds may be great horned owls. They have already nested at this structure.

Fortunately, the little owls appear to be doing well there perched on the windowsill, and with any luck, will all live long, happy, fruitful lives as birds of prey.

If their ability to intimidate even at this young age is any indicator, they’re off to a good start.
