After the tea



Thanks to our guide Silas who knew the place for the Pallid Scops Owl. It's a well-know place in Birecik / Turkey where this owl lives. Many ornithologist know this place and it's a 'must see' for every birding trip! This owl lives at café in the middle of the city since years and sleeps (not very high) in trees during the day.

After a good turkish tea at the café we started to search it and Joseph found it after 5min.
