Check my eyes (80)

Whitefaced Owl ( Witwanguil ) Otus leucotis
The biggest of the small owls 25 - 28cm
Fairly common in the Northern parts of the RSA, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia.
Likes bushveld especially thorn trees and prefers larger trees.

The subject in this picture has an interesting feature. One eye which is not the same as the normal white faced owl. It is totally black. As I am unsure whether this phenomenon is quite normal in this species, or whether this is due to a defect in the eye, I would like to open this up to discussion and find out if there are any fundies out there who would know the reason for this poor fellow only having one (nice ) eye and one ( weird ) eye.
Look forward to hearing from you guys
