Sooty Owl - Tyto tenebricosa

If I am not wrong, this is the first photo of this bird on TN. Here is the female, sitting on top of its nest hole.

A medium-sized owl to 45 cm long, with dark eyes set in a prominent flat, heart-shaped facial disc. Dark sooty-grey in colour, with large eyes in a grey face, fine white spotting above and below, and a pale belly. The plumage of the fledglings is similar to the adult, but has tufts of down on the head and underparts.

Hello Fatih,
This is an unique photo. Congratulations. Although the Sooty Owl is mostly black, this is a very dark photo. So I made a workshop. I hope you don't mind.
