Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Large brown “horned owl” of rocky hills and semi-desert, as well as thorn scrub and groves in arid areas. Very similar in appearance to Eurasian Eagle-Owl, but note weaker streaking on the underparts and smaller size; range overlap is limited. Hoot is higher-pitched than that of Eurasian Eagle-Owl, a sonorous “bou-woo.”
