Makunda Birds-1124 - Ninox scutulata
Brown Boobook (Brown Hawk Owl) chick - My daughter Hannah reported that an owl was hovering over an object on the ground near my home. This turned out to be a chick which had come out of a hollowed out branch of a tree that had broken off in recent stormy weather. This chick is too young to perch or fly and is recuperating in my home.
