Rainforest Scops-Owl

Otus rutilus (Pucheran, 1849)

The rainforest scops owl, also known as the Malagasy scops owl or Madagascar scops owl, is a species of owl in the family Strigidae. It is found in a large part of eastern Madagascar, but the exact distribution limits between it and the Torotoroka scops owl, with which it was long considered conspecific, require further study.
