Rainforest Scops-Owl

Otus rutilus (Pucheran, 1849)

The Rainforest Scops Owl (Otus rutilus), also known as the Malagasy Scops Owl or Madagascar Scops Owl, is a species of owl in the Strigidae family. It is found in a large part of eastern Madagascar, but the exact distribution limits between it and the Torotoroka Scops Owl (O. madagascariensis), with which it was long considered conspecific, require further study. The natural habitat of the Rainforest Scops Owl is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests. Source: Wikipedia
