Horned Owl and Forest Eagle Owl occur significantly in unprotected areas. The highest encounter rate of owls in unprotected areas was recorded from the Nelliampathy-Parambikulam Vazhachal-Anamalai hill complex. In protected areas, most species were found in the Indira Gandhi Wildlife Sanctuary and National Park of Tamil Nadu while lesser-found owls like Barred Jungle Owlet, Collared Scops, Oriental Scops and Brown Hawk Owl were encountered in protected areas. Distribution of birds was characterised by using vegetation types, topographic variables, disturbance levels and status of protection. More
