Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A slender brown owl with comically expressive golden eyes. Dark brown above and white below with long dark streaks on the breast. Its long tail and streaked undersides give it a distinctly hawklike profile in flight. Usually found in forests but occasionally shows up in small parks, especially on the coast during migration. Hunts flying insects at night and sometimes found around artificial lights. Gives an extended series of paired hoots.
