Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small brown owl of hilly and montane broadleaf forests, rarely in parks and gardens. Dark brown above, paler on the underparts and face, with bright yellow eyes. Prominent bright white stripe between back and wings is more contrasting than in other owls in its range. Brows are frosty white, as in larger Collared Scops-Owl, but ear tufts much shorter in Mountain. Song is a long series of soft double hoots, with 5-10 second pauses between each pair of notes.
