  1. Do you think this is the same species?
    Oriental Scops Owl India. Yes,India. That is exactly where this beautiful owl was captured being surprised by the flash of my camera. A cute little owl of merely 15-19 cm in height, was not seen but was traced by the amazing sound it made in the middle of the night.
