After looking around the area for an hour or so we gave up on the Masked Owl and concentrated our efforts on the Owlet Nightjars that could be heard all around the area. The are extremely difficult to spot as they are very small and they throw their voice a long way from where you think they should be from their call. On top of that they are often higher up in the trees. We saw a few of them while we were looking and heard several others calling out. We managed to spotlight a few of them and get a couple of photos as well. The Owlet Nightjars in these photos were at least 25 - 30 meters from us but we still managed to get a couple of reasonable shots.
