Nudge, nudge, wink, wink. The tiny Oriental Scops Owl

The wonderful and tiny and elusive Oriental Scops Owl.

Our catchphrase lesson for today, as we are not just about nature on this channel....."Nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more" is a catchphrase from Monty Python's Flying Circus, a British television comedy programme. Nudge, nudge, wink, wink, is used principally by brits to highlight an innuendo, especially a sexual one, in an earlier statement.

Many owls in Hong Kong have very dark eyes, but not this one! they are brilliant yellow....

Scientific Name: Otus sunia. Malay Name: Jampuk Kecil Chinese Name: 红角鸮.
