Remarks :he other half of the pair in Bhitarkanika. The local guide though was sure it was the Oriental. He was familiar with the pair and was sure that the recording he had (though not recorded at the same location) was from the same pair. He played me a call that sounded like an Oriental but then we never heard the birds calling in the 3 days we were there. Putting this down as a Collared Scops unless proved otherwise. I did come across an Oriental some 500m from this location. - RS
