On Sunday I took photos of the Hedges African Scops Owl and then we drove to Andre and Amanda Stoop's house. They showed us where the owl was roosting (like "our" owl, it was also very well camouflaged) and I took several photos.

This African Scops Owl seems to be a bit younger than ours; it also keeps its (quite squint) eyes open most of the day!
