Asian Barred Owlet Pictures and Detail- 

Finally, I am a happy man because I got my first picture of an owlet. Even after taking pictures of more than 100 different birds, I was unable to capture an owlet through my camera. I became lucky when I spotted an Asian Barred Owlet in my native village in Himachal. The scientific name of the Asian Barred Owlet is Glaucidium cuculoides.

The above owlet in pictures is the subspecies of Asian Barred Owlet which is found in the Himalayas and its scientific name is Glaucidium cuculoides.

Mostly, in Indian culture, people don't like owlets and associate them with bad things. However, I like them very much and even want to have one as a pet if I get one that can't fly due to an injury. Asian Barred owlets are put in the category of least concerned birds because of their presence in the good numbers.
