|Heard only - 2 or 3 barred eagle owls, ID by their "laughing" call|
|The 1st BEO was heard overhead, in a tree above the trail. It was a loud "laughing" call, made regularly for about 10 mins. A 2nd bird's response later heard, from further away. Maybe a 3rd bird was heard too (or maybe the 2nd bird flew in). Drongos in the area were agitated, and their mobbing sounds were heard throughout the area. Eventually the BEOs flew off, and everything quietened down. Unfortunately there was no visual sighting of the BEOs.|
|Poor and dim light for viewing. Will also upload audio file onto xeno canto.|
|No previous experience. BEO family known to be in this area.|
