Swinhoe’s Owlet – more

Following my most recent blog post on the Swinhoe’s Owlet, I received the images below from Mike Parker from Suffolk, UK and Chong Yih Yeong, based in Beijing.  The first was taken in Beidaihe in October 2004 and the second is one of the birds at Wenyu He.  Note the feet.. and compare with this image of Little Owl from the UK.

About Terry Townshend

I am a British birder living and birding in Beijing from August 2010 until 2015. Through this blog I hope I can convey a sense of what it is like to live in this thriving, confident and contrasting city and the birdlife that can be found in its environs. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it! Terry Townshend, Beijing September 2010

    Nice comparison shots! This looks like a not too difficult feature to pick out, assuming the toes are visible….
