Chunky brownish owlet. Shows bars and spots on the underparts and fine spotting on the nape and top of the head. Rare and enigmatic bird known from a small number of records in Albertine Rift montane forest. Gives a yelping series of “kow” notes, which are usually followed by emphatic, modulated, descending “ptrrrrr” notes. Very similar to African Barred Owlet, but has spotting rather than barring on top of the head, and a buff rather than white slash across the shoulder.
