      I got my first owl the other day, too! He/she screeched and dive-bombed me...

      Went to Sariska, and did find two owlets..i thought they were spotted one.... didnt find the park guides too helpful with identification...your post inspires me to find out more the difference between the these various species..

      Great shot!
      I was wondering whether you'd be happy for me to use your image to draw from? I'm having an exhibition in Cambridge next spring themed by endangered species - an awareness raising effort. I'd love to include the Forest Owlet in the line up.
      Thanks and best wishes, Rory

      Amazing snap again,sir. Well, I just wished to know, how one can differentiate between the spotted owlet and jungle owlet when one sees him from behind. I know from the front, I mean generally, forest owlet has a typical scaly pattern and spotted owlet has normal spots.

      Forest owlet which is critically endangered is not the same as Jungle Owlet your comment seems to indicate. Any bird book will be able to tell you the differences

      Okh. So, there is this third kind of bird which exists and forest owlet and jungle owlet are different. There is nothing on it in Dr. Salim Ali's book.
