Description

The Eurasian scops owl (Otus scops) is a small nocturnal bird, approximately the size of an Eurasian blackbird or a thrush. It has a large head with distinctive ear tufts and its patterned plumage mimics very effectively the bark of the trees on which it perches. It feeds mainly on insects.
