Rajah Scops-Owl

Otus brookii (Sharpe, RB 1892)

The Rajah scops owl is a species of owl found on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra. The bird is named after James Brooke, Rajah of Sarawak. Based on patterns of speciation in other endemic montane bird species of the same region, it may potentially have to be split into two distinct species; if so, the name Otus brooki would be restricted to just the Bornean population.
