Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Rare in its restricted range, this Central Chinese owl is seldom seen in the montane coniferous and mixed forests which it calls home. Resembles a darker version of Ural Owl; brown with a pale face, yellow bill, and heavily streaked underparts. Lacks the contrasting white facial “whiskers” of the smaller Himalayan Owl. Gives a long shaky hoot and occasional gruff barks.
