The return of 2 cute, fluffy and rare lifers for me. The small Oriental Scops Owl is a rare passage migrant to the shores of Singapore during winter. The owls are found mainly in North and East Asia, such as India, China, Japan and Korea.
.
To see one is already a treat, to see 2 is bloody fantastic, to see both the Rufous and Grey morphs together in one tree so close to humans? FABULOUS!!! Apparently, the rufous owl was here before, the grey I'm not sure.
.
When I got there, they were perched up in a tall tree with about 20+ photographers waiting for them to wake up. The rufous was the first to wake up and look at us before dozing off again. The grey however slept all the way until a sudden heavy downpour woke it up. Luckily I managed to get one good shot of it before I had to run for cover!

Here are 10 photos of another species added to my furry favourites collection.

I can’t wait to visit this place again to photograph more of these beauties.

Bald Eagle | Pygargue à tête blanche | Weißkopfseeadler | Haliaeetus leucocephalus: What do Bald Eagles and Anna's Hummingbirds have in common? They perch a the very top of a tree, no matter how small the tip! Oh, and they fiercely defend their territory. 🤣 In any event, after my somewhat disappointing trip (photographically speaking) to Harrison River, I was quite pleased to nail this photo!

Taken in Delta (British Columbia), Canada on December 7, 2018, with a handheld Nikon D7200 and AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR (ISO 400 | 500mm | -0.33 ev | f/5.6 | 1/2500), cropped -63% of original. Wild, as shot; not baited, called in or set up.

An adult male olive backed sunbird endemic to Asia and parts of Northeast Australia. Only adult males have that metallic blue in their head feathers. Feeding only on nectar and insects only when raising youngs, these relatively tiny colourful birds can be seen even in trees near homes on hills along the beach.
