The Mottled Wood Owl, Lalbagh, 120816

Every now and then, the "experts" start fussing that the

Mottled Wood Owls

of Lalbagh have "disappeared". Immediately, of course the birders and bird photographers of Bangalore are blamed (interestingly never the hundreds of walkers and visitors that go past the place where the owls are.)

So, after a couple of reports that the Owls could not be found, one of them delighted me in its usual copse behind the giant Bauhinia creeper.

The sexes are alike, according to the Wiki entry, so I don't know if this is a he or a she!

I took a short video as it hopped across, out of sight in the very low light.



The music is "Night Vision" which is what I needed to see the Owl in the low light...and the band playing it is Bird Creek, which, too, I thought appropriate!

Click on the name of the bird to find out more about this beautiful creature that shares one of Bangalore's lung spaces with us!
