African Barred Owlet

Unread post by K-4S » Mon Dec 30, 2013 8:06 pm

This is one for the birders.

I recently saw a picture of an African Barred Owlet and wanted to ask if anyone has seen one lately in the Kruger and where it was? The Roberts Bird Guide of the Kruger National Park and adjacent lowveld says that is found most commly in the hills around Punda Maria and in some camps such as Letaba.

Could anyone verify this for me as I would love to go in search to see one of these lovely birds myself.

Going to Shingwedzi, Letaba and Tamboti in Feb so I will keep an eye peeled!

I need to find one as well! We only found Pearl Spotted Owlets so far, and since we will be at Biyamiti on 13 and 14 January 2014, we'll try our best to find an African Barred Owlet! :dance: :dance:

Like Elsa suggests, it is ALWAYS a good idea to check out the specie threads listed in the Bird Index. We have 620 southern African species listed (still growing steadily), most threads with tonnes of information and personnal observations you just cannot find anywhere else!
