Long eared owl sitting in it's favorite acacia (as many pellets under the tree can proof, see last picture)
Wadi in Wadi Lathi, the shallow part of South Sinai. (But I saw the same species also in Sinai's High Mountain range, around 1.800m ...)
The Bedouin name call it mainly 'buma' (which refers to any owl), or 'umm qwayq' (meaning The Screeching One) for this species.
