SPECIES INFO

Wikimedia Commons has media related to: Bubo capensis

The Cape Eagle-owl (Bubo capensis) is a species of owl in the Strigidae family. It is found in Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe.

There are three subspecies: capensis (South Africa and extreme southern Namibia), mackinderi (western Mozambique and Zimbabwe to west-central Kenya), and dilloni (the Ethiopian highlands and southern Eritrea). The distribution of all three is patchy. The subspecies mackinderi, which is slightly bigger than the others, is sometimes split as Mackinder's Eagle-owl, Bubo mackinderi.
