These scans are from international trips. I hope some of you have international birding experience! Again, thanks for your help.

Parrot(?), from Kathmandu, Nepal, August 1996.

Sorry for the bad photo. Didn't have much of a telephoto. This 'owl like' bird was seen in Chitwan National Park, Nepal, August 1996.

I think is probably a Jungle Crow. Seen on Komodo Island (yes, I went to see the dragons!), Indonesia, July 1994.

2 might be a Spot-bellied Eagle-owl?

rose necked parakeet


Is this the same as a rose-ringed parakeet or a ring-necked parakeet? I can't find info for rose-necked. Thanks.

-bump-
Thanks to Parula and GodComplex for their IDs. I'm hoping there might be some more international birders here who could confirm these. I don't feel comfortable adding birds to my lifelist unless 2 or more confirmations are made.

I still am not sure on the Eagle-owl, so I hope someone can confirm it.

But for the parrot, it looks like a Rose-ringed Parakeet.

1. May be an Alexandrine (as opposed to Rose-ringed Parakeet). I don't suppose you have a shot where we can see the shoulder?

2. Back pattern fits better for Brown Fish Owl.

3. You are probably right with Jungle Crow, strange to see it from that angle.

Back in those days (pre-digital), I took only 1 shot per subject! 36 exposures per roll of film. Are you back from your California trip?

I do appreciate everyone's efforts on the owl...I know the pic doesn't give you much to work with!

Lol! That's what I figured.

Yes, I'm back from California. I wrote a bit on my blog.

Seeing the front of the owl would make it so much easier to be able to identify it.

But I think Liam may be correct with Brown Fish Owl. It seems that all Spot-bellied Eagle-Owls have a bit of white on the top of their ears, while Brown Fish Owls do not. Since it is so far away, it may have white and we just cannot see it, but I think Liam is correct with Brown Fish Owl.
