    New distribution record of the Forest Owlet Heteroglaux blewitti Hume, 1873, (Aves: Strigiformes: Strigidae) in Purna Wildlife Sanctuary, Gujarat, India
    Journal Article
    Little is known about the distribution of the endemic forest owlet Heteroglaux Blewitti in India. Its presence has been always dubious in the past in Gujarat. Earlier surveys failed to confirm its occurrence in Gujarat. We present the photographic evidence of the forest owlet from the Purna Wildlife Sanctuary, Gujarat. Two individuals were observed in the same locality. This record presents the first record of Forest owlet from northernmost Western Ghats. A species targeted study is recommended to generate information for the conservation of this threatened species in its range in Gujarat.
