I was able to get in touch with a good local guide in Sri Lanka, Amila Salgado.
Thanks to him I was able to see 3 small owls. First of all the Serendip Scops Owl,
a bird that was discovered only a few years back in the 21st Century.
The 2nd one and also endemic to Sri Lanka was the Chestnut-backed Owlet.
We had good scope views but not good light for photography.
Then on 2 different occasions I saw a pair of Indian Scops Owls on day roost.

The birds are skulkers and like the forest floor so to have him up on a branch in front of me was very special.
I made a recoding as well:
