Bird Quiz #3

Postby Michael » Sun May 08, 2016 7:47 pm

Hello all,

Continuing from last week, it's another picture-notes hybrid. Next week, I shall see if I can sort out a call, just to stretch you.

This week's bird is not going to be familiar to all of you, but is a bird in your guides, and quite easy to identify if you use your guides well.

Walking out to the shed in late afternoon. Noticed this small bird in my backyard. Habitat very open farmland, a few shelter banks. Flew away after disturbance to sit on lamppost. Went to look for it later, couldn't relocate.

Yes, we are still looking for an incorrect answer! This is a Little Owl, German Owl, Athene noctua or Brown Owl.

You guys are just to good! Unfortunately, I cannot find a quality sound recording yet, but I am delighted to announce Ian Southey has donated some of his pictures. Be prepared for a challenge!!
