The spotted wood owl


I have an unofficial rule here that I share cute birds who makes it to Wikipedia’s featured picture of the day. This spotted wood owl was photographed by JJ Harrison in Pasir Ris Park in Singapore, no less!

From the Wikipedia article:

The spotted wood owl (Strix seloputo) is an owl of the earless owl genus, Strix. Its range is disjunct; it occurs in many regions surrounding Borneo, but not on that island itself.
