At-Tafilah Highway, Jordan - March 6 2019
A close-up view of a Desert Owl. Mystic and rare, we still had some hope to see the enigmatic Desert Owl. There were some reports of reliable sites in the past, but in recent reports birders seems to have failed to find it. So, of course we were very excited when we found them on three occasions, not looking for any Desert Owls at all. We were spotlighting for mammals!
