CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A west suburban couple and a tree serviceman became unexpected heroes to a family of owls earlier this week. Curt and Kate Petersen, along with help, rescued fallen baby owls and made a new home for them.

They found two owlets in their Lisle yard after falling almost 50 feet out of their nest.

The couple took the baby owls inside to feed and keep them warm, while building them a new stronger nest.

The next day the owlets were safely hoisted back into the tree – in a cloth Victoria's Secret bag.

The nervous couple was very relieved to see the mother owl return to her new stylish nest made out of grass, a burlap sack and an apple crate soon after.
