Papuan Owl

Uroglaux dimorpha (Salvadori, AT 1874)

The Papuan hawk-owl is a medium-sized, sleek owl with a proportionately small head, long tail, and short, rounded wings. Its white facial disk is small and indistinct, with black streaks, and white eyebrows. It has buff-colored upperparts and barred black and brown underparts. Its eyes are bright yellow, and it has a gray to black bill. The male is larger than the female, which is unusual among owls. Source: Wikipedia
