Walden's Scops Owl, India, South Andaman, January 2017


on the other hand this form is a very thin mooted split - clearly 'just' very close to (or part of) Oriental Scops

Hume's Boobook, India, South Andaman, January 2017


We were struck by how similar this bird was to the Andaman Boobook in appearance - convergent evolution?

madbirder@surfbirder.com I've birded on an off since I was six. I've visited over 40 countries, not all for birding sadly and lived in the middle east, North Africa, Great Britain, Trinidad and the United States. I'm an avid sound recorder and have posted thousands of recordings on Xeno-canto (http://www.xeno-canto.org/recordist.php?id=PWDLINYMKL) and my photos are on my Flicker page (http://www.flickr.com/photos/madbirder). I now guide for Birdtour Asia.

Bird Photographer, some Mammals, some Landscapes I have been a bird watcher for many years but have recently began to devote more time to photography. By chance I use Canon gear and am still trying to learn my way around the cameras and lenses. Most of my early pix were taken with a 30D and 300f4. Now I am using a 7D and a 1DM4 with a variety of telephoto lens from the 300f2.8 to the 800f5.6. I find most photography websites intimidating so I am just gradually learning on my own or picking up tips from other photographers - slow and steady. In addition to static portrait shots I like good images of moving birds in cluttered habitat, but I find they are a real challenge to secure.
