Brown Hawk-Owl / খয়রা শিকরেপ্যঁাচা (Ninox scutulata)

This is a stunning beauty, and couldn't think of a day trip in the Botanical garden without watching it once. Hope they are staying well there.

This species is a part of the larger grouping of owls known as typical owls, Strigidae, which contains most species of owl.

Brown Hawk-Owl is a resident breeder in most of tropical south Asia from the Middle East to south China. Its habitat is well-wooded country and forest. It lays three to five eggs in a tree hole.

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.

There is only one record of the Brown Hawk-Owl in the western hemisphere, an individual photographed on St. Paul Island, Alaska, on August 27, 2007.

Status: Northern populations fairly common, southern populations more at risk.
