The Brown Hawk Owl (Ninox scutulata), also known as the Brown Boobook is a species of bird belonging to the family Strigidae. It is a medium-sized owl measuring about 32 cm in length. This species feeds mainly on large insects such as beetles and grasshoppers, but also consume frogs, lizards, small birds, mice and small insectivorous bats or crabs. It can be found in unlogged and logged forests, mangroves, secondary vegetations, sometimes rubber or oil palm estates.
Both sexes are similar but the males tend to be larger than females. The Brown Hawk Owl has a hawk-like shape due to its long tail and lack of a distinct facial disk. The upperparts are plain dark brown plumage, with a barred tail while the underparts are whitish with reddish-brown streaking. The owl also has large and yellow eyes with pale fluffy feathering at the base of its bill between the eyes. [Source: MyBIS]
