Black and White Owl

Strix nigrolineata


It is a medium-sized owl (40 cm in length and weigh between 400-535 grams), round head and no ear tufts. It has a striped black-and-white breast, belly, and vent. most of the face is black, The beak is a yellow-orange colour, and the eyes are a reddish brown. As an interesting fact, I have seen this owl hunting fishing bats ( Noctilio leporinus)
