Collared Owlet

Doi Lang. We were shooting full-frame shots of the white-browed laughingthrushes, when my guide shouted "Myron, I need your lens. Now!!!" I obediently complied for my appointment with cutey here! I could not see the bird with my naked eyes even after he had aimed my camera at it! I guess I was expecting it to be the size of a Barred Eagle-Owl, but it turned out to be more like a Spotted Owlet size! Moral of the Story: It pays to study your textbook (Craig Robson), even if you are not expecting it to come out in the test (encounter in your expedition)!
