Since the beginning of the season, my fellow guides have seen on several occasions some white-faced scops owls which are fairly rare here in the park, and I always wanted to see one as well!
And this day was my lucky one, as I found not one but two white-faced scops owls. We were coming back from the night drive and were just two minutes away from Mwamba, when we came across those owls perched in a tree. One of them had a mouse hanging down his beak. I think this was a pair, a male and a female, and probably the male had the mouse and was trying to impress the female. This is typical behaviour for owls when they want to form a pair.
It was really nice to see them as they were posing for us for a while.
