Eurasian Eagle-Owl

The Indian Eagle-Owl also called the Rock Eagle-Owl

or Bengal Eagle-Owl (Bubo bengalensis) is a

species of large horned owl found in South Asia.

They were earlier treated as a subspecies of the

Eurasian Eagle-Owl. They are found in hilly and

rocky scrub forests, and are usually seen in

pairs. They have a deep resonant booming call that

may be heard at dawn and dusk. They are typically

large owls, and have "tufts" on their

heads. They are splashed with brown, and grey and

have a white throat patch with black small

stripes.
