Indian eagle-owl
The Indian eagle-owl, also called the rock eagle-owl or Bengal eagle-owl (Bubo bengalensis), is a species of large horned owl found in the Indian Subcontinent. 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.

Hello Manaswi,

Hope you are doing fine. This is a fantastic image of this wonderful Indian Eagle owl.I have not yet come across this species here in Pakistan, we have it but I have so far failed to photograph it.Of the course the eye contact is wonderful, for owls have these large round eyes for nocturnal activities.....superb shot! Thanks a lot for sharing.....yes, before leaving let me wish you a brand New Year, have a fun time, take care,
Best regards/Abid
