Oh, I wouldn't know why this would be an American name. It presumably refers to the ring around the face, being like the disk on a Barn Owl's face. Of course Barn Owls are a very widespread species. As that is the only similarity I can think of. I first became familiar with these birds in captivity, as I often kept them in my school days. Both in captivity and wild, they are in demeanour a really charming little bird. I can't think of another bird species that equally deserves that description. Now that is really scientific.........
I wonder why you would suggest they seem to be declining.
