Spotted Owlet in Rajasthan: Distribution, Characteristics, and Conservation

Dr. Anita Jhajhria

Abstract: The Spotted Owlet (Athene Brama) is the most prominent owl species found in Rajasthan. The roosting ecology was observed and researched in Sikar. Different desert trees were used as perching sites. Seasonal variation was also observed in their behaviour. They switched their resting sites in summers and winters. They are widely visible in spring. Roosting sites were observed near the nesting sites on the College campus. The owlet was seen sleeping during the daytime and was in an inactive state. They are very active at night and constantly screech and scream. The present papers dynamically describes the ecology and conservation efforts to save the remaining owlets in Sikar.
