Little Or Lilith's Owl? SW Turkey, June (1 Viewer)

Paul Collins

Well-known member

Maybe the title of this thread will be enough to confirm an ID! I saw this owl one hot June day in Bitez, near Bodrum (South-West Turkey). I think this is a Little Owl (maybe A.N. indigena) but, since reading "Owls Of The World" am confused whether the similar Lilith's Owl's range extends this far west. Curious if this is a Little Owl, a Lilith's Owl, or a hybridisation, and why (appearance and range)? I suspect Little but who knows.

Many thanks,
