Moroccan Marsh Owl at lower Loukkos marshes

By | 9 December 2014

Some images of the Moroccan Marsh Owl (Asio capensis tingitanus) taken at the lower Loukkos marshes near Larache by Imad Yassine in October and December 2014. To my knowledge, not many photographs of the Marsh Owl were taken at these marshes. This is due to the general perception among birders that Marsh Owl in Morocco is synonymous with Merja Zerga (lagoon of Moulay Bousselham).
