    Researchers say they've discovered three adorable 10-day-old mountain lion kittens in Sonoma County.

    The Audubon Canyon Ranch research teams discovered the kittens Friday near Glen Ellen and Kenwood, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

    ACR Communication Manager Wendy Coy says the team had been watching the kittens' mother, P1, for six months. It is the first time the team has had one of its tracked mountain lions deliver a litter of kittens.

    The team was able to take a quick peek at the kittens when they knew the mother would not be around. The team follows P1's movements through her GPS collar.

    Coy says the kittens are in good health and the team is planning more visits to track their growth.
