"Hi,
I heard the rumour of an undescribed species of scops-owl from a Bali Barat NP ranger and tried my luck. I was able to fotograph the scops-owl last week in Lombok. It is an undescribed species, apparently allready discovered several years ago, but kept surpressed for unknown but dubious reasons. The pictures were taken north of Senggigi. The species occurs in lush gardes and coconut palmgroves mixed with other trees. During my surveys on three evenings I saw a few, but heard quite a lot of them. I think it is fairly common in this widespread habitat. I made some sound recordings as well, will shall be published on Xeno-canto. The sound is very unlike the of Moluccan Scops-owl, which is also supposed to occur on the island.

Best regards,
Wiel Poelmans."
