30th August 2008: Air Hitam, Penang

An evening visit to try to show some friends the Oriental Bay Owls drew a blank - no sound of them at all.

We caught sight of what seemed like a scrap of bright blue litter in the top of a tree - it turned out to be a roosting male Asian Fairy Bluebird!

Some compensation for the no-show by the Bay Owls was a nice exhibition by a pair of Brown Hawk Owls.

This pair hangs out by a guard house, so are very accustomed to people.

I'd hate to be on the menu!

This fluky shot, taken at a very slow shutter speed, shows that this bird has caught a moth.
