African Barred Owlet

Glaucidium capense

This special, brown-backed owlet is smaller than pearl-spotted  with a barred head and face and spotted (not streaked) belly.

I first saw this beautiful species with Skye Hartog in March 2012 while on a “Byamithi camp” night drive in the Kruger National Park.
