      Thank you. I had always seen him/her on the palm stump in the corner of the aviary, apparently asleep, until I looked in just before 4pm. Mouse motivation paid dividends :) How cool are those nostrils?

      You know, I was actually just thinking how it's nose looks like a cattle skull, of sorts

      Is this in the aviary were the Luzon Scops Owl was or have they renamed the species.

      It's the same bird. I couldn't remember which island it came from, so I used the name from ZooTierListe.
