    Nicobar Scops Owl Otus alius Data Deficient => Near-threatened

    With several photographs and observations pouring out of Great Nicobar on Nicobar Scops Owl, would it be wise to revise the redlist status of this species ?

    By geography, it would fit the four other Nicobar endemics that are present in good numbers

    Great Nicobar Serpent-eagle Spilornis klossi (NT)
    Nicobar Bulbul Hypsipetes nicobariensis (NT)
    Nicobar Parakeet Psittacula caniceps (NT)
    Nicobar Pigeon Caloenas nicobarica (NT)

    The ease with which several birders have obtained this species since 2014 would warrant the same listing (Near-threatened) for the species ?

    Large-billed Reed Warbler Acrocephalus orinus

    Would the new information which has been published from Tajikistan-Afghanistan indicated new breeding colonies.
    Coupled with the wintering records from Thailand & Bangladesh, dont we have enough information to reassess its status ?
    I do not have a recommendation, but I believe that we have added quite a lot of information in the last several years on this species that makes it less of a ‘Data Deficient’ bird.
