Bengal Eagle Owl (Bubo bengalensis) by Steve  Liptrot

Bengal Eagle Owl (Bubo bengalensis) by 

The Indian Eagle Owl or Bengal Eagle Owl (Bubo bengalensis) is a species of large horned owl found in South Asia. They were earlier treated as a subspecies of the Eurasian 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 “tufts” on their heads. They are splashed with brown, and grey and have a white throat patch with black small stripes.
