ASIAN BARRED OWLET


Owl2

Asian Barred Owlet ( Glaucidium cuculoides ) is a species of true owl that inhabits South Asia and SE Asia.They range in size from 20 to 23 cm.It’s found mostly in open broadleaved forests and open areas with clumps of trees, up to 1800 m.This species of owl is located in northern,western,eastern and most part of central Thailand.

I spotted this bird during day, around 4pm, in Salak Phra Wildlife Sanctuary,around the park office.It was perched on a branch and remained still for few minutes,and when it noticed my presence it flew away.It was enough time to take this nice picture !!
