The Spotted Owlet (Athene brama) is a small owl which breeds in tropical Asia from India to Southeast Asia. A common resident of open habitats including farmland and human habitation, it has adapted to living in cities. They roost in small groups in the hollows of trees or in cavities in rocks or buildings. It nests in a hole in a tree or building, laying 3-5 eggs.
This species is nocturnal but is sometimes seen in the day. When disturbed from their daytime site, they bob their head and stare at intruders, It can often be located by the small birds that mob it while it is perched in a tree. It hunts a variety of insects and small vertebrates.

Hi Arpita
Very nice capture of these Spotted owls. You have wonderful colour with you background. You have a very good point of view and it well composed. Unfortunately you missed with you exposure. I will do a Work Shop of it and see if can be brightened up.
Thanks for sharing
Best wishes

Difficult light conditions when subjects are surrounded by thick foliage, Arpita. All the same, it is a fairly good picture.
