In July 2017 Kariega Game Reserve and the Kariega Foundation officially started the African Barred Owlet research project in collaboration with researchers from Rhodes University based in nearby Grahamstown. African Barred Owlets are secretive but can sometimes be seen in the daylight perching on low limbs. It is very rare and particularly difficult to spot as it is so small. The adult birds are fully grown at 22 centimeters, which is about the size of your hand. Adult African Barred Owlets only weigh about 100 grams - only 20% of the weight of a block of butter! This owl was photographed by my wife Galyn Hiser in Tanzania.
