Brown Hawk Owl(Ninox scutulata)
This owl was posted on last Sept as 'The moment of Earthquake'. This is a link.
To get ready for the emergency, the owl began to stretch muscles and lift up wings. It seems to be in alarm.
The Brown Hawk Owl is an owl which is a resident breeder in south Asia from India and Sri Lanka east to western Indonesia and south China.
The Brown Hawk Owl is a medium-sized (32cm) owl with a hawk-like shape due to its long tail and lack of a distinct facial disk. The upperparts are dark brown, with a barred tail.
This species is very nocturnal but it can often be located by the small birds that mob it while it is roosting in a tree. It feeds mainly on large insects, frogs, lizards, small birds, and mice. The call is a repeated low soft, musical oo-uk ...ooo-uk... which may be heard at dusk and dawn.
Thank you for viewing.
