A large gray-brown owl with bright yellow eyes, large ear tufts, and finely barred underparts. Occurs in open woodland, often in rocky areas, including wadis. Usually nests on rocks, but occasionally in trees. The typical call is a soft, booming “whoo-whhooo.” Also gives a low, vibrating “br-r-r-r.” Similar to Pharaoh Eagle-Owl, but smaller and darker, with more heavily marked underparts and spots rather than streaks on the back of the head.
