Spotted Wood-owl nesting at Dairy Farm Crescent

on 7th June 2013

Frank Chiew of Dairy Farm Crescent in Singapore reported the nesting of a pair of Spotted Wood-owl (Strix seloputo) in April 2013. The pair nested in a tree behind his flat, producing one owlet. Every evening about 6.20pm they would start calling to each other.

This piece of information came through the courtesy of Richard Hale who added that “Luckily all nesting was over by the time … decided drastically to prune the trees in the Crescent, or the Straits Times would have had one very angry correspondent.”
