Very small owl with golden-yellow eyes. Cryptic and well-camouflaged, with streaky gray-brown plumage that blends in perfectly with tree bark. Small ear tufts raised when alert. Much more easily detected at night, when monotonously repeated and well-carrying song, a single plaintive hoot, is given. Found in a variety of open woodlands, scrubby areas, orchards, and parks.
