Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Fairly large, brown owl with long ear tufts. Endemic to Madagascar, where it is found locally in all forest types, and sometimes in scrub and plantations. Usually roosts high in a tree, often in an introduced pine tree. Call is a series of nasal barks, similar to White-browed Owl but less quick and emphatic. Similar in size to Marsh Owl, but has prominent ear tufts and a pale chest with fine streaks. Much larger than Malagasy and Torotoroka Scops-Owls.
