Beskrivelse: Spotted Owlet er den ugle, man lettest ser i indien. Den er almindelig og sidder ofte helt frit fremme. Denne gruppe er fotograferet lige ved templet i Keoladeo Ghana - også kendt som Bharatpur. Når man holder pause her er det en idé at scanne himlen for Indisk Skrigeørn, der tit ses i display lige over stedet.
