Paradise

Bengal Eagle Owl

They are found in hilly and rocky scrub forests, and are usually seen in pairs.

They have a deep resonant booming call that may be heard at dawn and dusk. They are typically large owls, and have feather tufts on their heads. They are splashed with brown, and grey and have a white throat patch with black small stripes.

DID YOU KNOW? The simple way to tell whether an owl hunts by day or night is by the colour of their eyes. Owls with orange or yellow eyes hunt by day. Owls with brownor black eyes hunt by night.
