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.
