Two Owls from the Kruger National Park

We were camping in the Kruger N P last weekend and saw these two owls. The Scops was fairly high up in a tree inside the camp and the Barred was just outside the camp fence about 15 metres away.

The Barred Owlet is the larger of the two being about 20cm and is mainly nocturnal but occasionally active during the day.

The Scops Owl is 14 - 18cm and is nocturnal. Very camouflaged and often hard to find.

Here is another photo taken last year in the same camp.

Warm Regards
