A medium-sized owl with prominent ear tufts. The orange eyes are set in a brown facial disc. The breast is heavily streaked, and the belly barred. Found very locally in montane habitats including forest, heath, and sometimes open country. Similar to Spotted Eagle-Owl, but slightly smaller, slimmer, and browner, with longer ear tufts. Somewhat like Grayish Eagle-Owl, but with orange eyes. The call is a long, deep hoot.
