Medium-sized rufous-brown owl. Note the dark eyes, rufous face, and cleanly barred underparts. Found in and around humid forest. The main vocalization is a long, haunting whistle that first rises, then falls and fades. A secondary vocalization is a low, purring trill. Similar in shape to Akun Eagle-Owl, but has dark rather than yellow eyes, more rufous coloration, and cleaner markings on the underparts.
