Spotted Wood Owl

Strix Seloputo (Seloputo)

Notes:

Critically endangered in Singapore, with about 80 individuals left. The male and female were together, but the female flew off before I took the photo (this is the male) Hopefully they will mate this year. The last time they had chcks was 2007, and of the two only one survived. I know that is their territory and has been for many years, and so I plan to go back there and get a better shot. :)

Thanks :) I also listen for them and try to find them from their calls to each other.

I would love to! But till I get the chance to go there, I'm left chasing roosters in the Nature Reserves....

You can get in quite easily if you want to see them too :)

Thanks RoySim :) Yes, I did see them last night, but only for about 5 minutes because it was still raining and they were a lot further back in than normal, so they were hard to see. :(

Oh, well...tonight maybe :D Thanks for asking :)

Hi dutagupta, these ones are not in a nature reserve, they are on Dover Road up the driveway to UWCSEA School. They have been there for a few years and had chicks about 4 years ago.

I go almost every night (and will go tonight too :) ) Almost every night they are there at about 7 o'clock if you go up the drive way :D
