VIDEO: First recorded Desert Tawny Owl (Strix hadorami) – Yuval Dax

Along with Israeli ornithologist and videographer, Yuval Dax, Birding Adventures TV may have recorded the first ever footage of the newly described and rare Desert Tawny Owl (Strix hadorami). The footage was taken of a pair of calling birds in a remote part of the Judean Desert in Israel during the second Champions of the Flyway bird race. Long assumed to be Hume’s Owl this bird’s genetics have now been confirmed to differ by at least 10%.
