Lesser Sooty-Owl (multipunctata)

Tyto multipunctata multipunctata (= Tyto multipunctata) Mathews, 1912

The Lesser Sooty Owl (Tyto multipunctata) is a species of owl that lives in the wet tropics region of Australia. It is considered conspecific with the Greater Sooty Owl, Tyto tenebricosa, by some authors, including BirdLife International. The birds are then together commonly referred to as Sooty Owls. Like other birds of prey, the female (37 centimetres or 15 inches) is bigger than the male (33 cm or 13 in). The Lesser Sooty Owl is part of the masked group of owls: an important part of the environment because they are efficient predators that keep down rodent populations. They feed mostly on animals like rats, bandicoots, and other rodents, but occasionally eat arboreal animals like birds and squirrel gliders. Lesser Sooty Owls live long and have low production rates with a breeding season from January to August. They are classified as common even though they have a limited habitat range. Lesser Sooty Owls are protected animals under Australian law. Source: Wikipedia
