Brown Hawk-Owl

Brown hawk-owl (Ninox scutulata) A difficult bird to get in the open and more so because it is nocturnal.

Brown Fish Owl..

Very close to our jeep in Bandhavgarh...

Spot-Bellied Eagle owl

aka Forest Eagle Owl and extremely rare to find this beauty in our forest. Very luck to find one in our last trip to KGudi. Very late in the evening with low light conditions.

Urban Wildlife

Spotted Owlet: Saw this guy (and a few others) happily perched in these overflow drain pipes very close to the main road near my house.

Indian Eagle Owl, Female

Took us quite a searching in a rainy day and in the end we were very lucky to find her in the open. Even then it was not easy to spot this master of camouflage.

Short Eared Owl

LRK Special.. Got this after three days of hard work, lot of patience and crawling on the ground with bruised knees and elbows :)

Indian Eagle Owl

Late evening on the rocks..
