Short-eared Owl - Red River/Hanoi

The Short-eared Owl was one of my main targets this automn. I have been lucky enough to see recently 3 individuals near Hanoi, along the Red River. This is a short video of one of them. I will send photos later. 
A scarce bird in Vietnam. Or maybe just under-recorded due to the lack of people checking suitable habitat at the good period of the year...


  1. Wow, excellent video Sebastien. Thanks for doing a great job keeping the blog going and reporting all your sightings of scarce birds from around Hanoi. Like the Black Stork pix from last week too.

    All the best,

  2. I'll second everything that Richard said - amazing bit of video - makes me want to be in Hanoi for a winter weekend!
