Baby owls nesting in waterfront hotel near SFO

Guests at a luxury hotel near SFO are getting more than just a spectacular view. They're getting a close-up look at Mother Nature in action.

Adorable baby barn owls were hatched -- of all places -- in a nest on the eleventh floor balcony of the Marriott Waterfront Hotel in Burlingame.

Their parents made their nest there about six weeks ago. Since then, the hotel has become owl central.

The Marriott is making the best of the situation. It's giving out toy owls to guests and encouraging people to come around twilight to see the young birds flying around the hotel.

The San Mateo SPCA says it's likely the owls will come back year after year to the same nest.
