Scops Owl  
Scops owls hunt from perches in semi-open landscapes. They prefer areas which contain old trees with hollows; these are home to their prey which includes insects, reptiles and small mammals such as bats and mice and other small birds. This was taken in Kanha National Park, India.  As you can see, they manage to camouflage their presence very well.
