The Short-Eared Owl is another amazing bird found in the deserts of Kutch. The bird is generally very shy, but can be cooperative depending on how you approach it. Understanding the natural history of your subjects is a major factor for making good wildlife images. If you are on your own it’s very difficult to find these birds. Like a lot of birds and animals, these owls are also territorial and the local guide/expert knows their roosting places and can guide you to them.
The golden light of Kutch makes these birds glow and they look very beautiful. Who said deserts are boring and flat? You should visit the deserts of Kutch to experience the amazing wildlife and birds found in that area.
