Southern White Faced Scops Owl

Ptilopsis Granti

One of the most beautiful birds of prey is the Southern White faced Scops with its characteristic white face edged with black and amber jewel-like eyes. The White-faced Scops Owl occurs in savannah country from the scrub desert fringes of the Sahara to the arid south western coastal region of Africa. Its diet consists mainly of insects and arachnids, however it occasionally hunts small birds and mammals. They lay 2 to 3 eggs and are incubated for 30 days, the young are independent at 6 weeks.


Here at Yarak Birds of prey we take in birds that are in need of help and strive to accommodate them during their rehabilitation. We have no external funding for this care and rely on donations from the public to continue this work, so please consider helping us in this task.
