African pearl-spotted owl - African pearl-spotted owl by Lyn Ellison
  African pearl-spotted owl  (2006)
Subject: African pearl-spotted owl
Dimensions (centimeters): 91 x 46
Medium: oil
Description: This is another beautiful little owl that I have seen regularly in Africa. It is often visible during the day and can be seen sitting quietly on a dead branch of a tree trying to keep out of trouble until the light wanes. Becuase of its small size it is often mobbed by other small birds. When we spotted this little fellow in Namibia it was hard to tell which way it was facing until we got quite close. This is because it has faulse eye markings on the back of its head which are there to confuse either its prey or other predators
