Ecological observations of Elegant Scops owls at night are an essential side of tourism on Orchid Island. Tour guides, narrators, and bed and breakfast house owners lead vacationers to forests on the island, utilizing searchlights to search out the Elegant Scops owls. This tourism activity severely interferes with the routines of the Elegant Scops owls. The publicity to the robust light from the searchlight causes short-term blindness, preventing the birds from having the ability to fly away. For instance, adult birds caring for owlets are more doubtless to be frightened by the vacationers and should leave their nests and never return, which might result in the deaths of owlets.
