Ostensible Observer

"Think you're seeing the same thing?"

The world's smallest owl, the Collared Owlet / Pungguk Kerdil, can turn its head 180 on its shoulders, sporting false ornate eyes on the back of its head to deceive onlookers from behind. It is also active during the day as seen here.

Mountain forest, Fraser's Hill 16/02/10, 12:00pm.
