Jungle Owlet. This tiny Kanha (Kanha National Park, Madhya Pradesh) resident bravely stands sentinel at his daytime roost in a tree hollow near Kisli Gate. Keep your eyes peeled as you pass through the gates and you might spot him swaying sleepily in the breeze. Jungle Owlets have yellow irises, are 20 cm tall and roost in tree cavities. When disturbed, they freeze & pretend to be dead tree stumps!
