The Black-and-white Owl is very big, and usually perches high up in the trees. The face of the owl is black, with an orange beak and large black eyes, which enable the bird to hunt effectively during the night. From the throat to the vent, it shows fine barring in black and white, hence the name. We usually hear its call at my parent’s home during the evening, however this was the first time I saw it resting inside a bamboo forest during the day. I was riding my bicycle when I saw a dark blob in the bamboo, which at first I thought it was a vulture. Luckily I was carrying my camera on the backpack and when I came closer to inspect, I saw the owl.
