POWERED BY MERLIN

A rather small owl with brown upperparts generally lightly spotted or barred white or grayish. On Bougainville, has a brown chest with a plain creamy underside. On Guadalcanal, creamy underside is thickly barred with reddish brown. On Malaita, overall much darker brown, with dark eyes and heavily brown-barred underside. On Makira, uniformly rufous with contrasting white throat and dark eyes. Prefers well-developed forest, mainly in lowlands, but up to 1500 meters of elevation. Unlikely to overlap in range with any similar species. Vocal range poorly known, but a series of monotone “poop” or “chong” notes is regularly reported.
