The Anjouan Scops Owl, Otus capnodes, is an owl endemic to the Comoro Islands.
This species is a part of the larger grouping of owls known as typical owls, Strigidae, which contains most species of owl. The other grouping is the barn owls, Tytonidae.
This owl is found on the island of Anjouan. It has an estimated population of less than 400. It is classified as Critically Endangered because its range is restricted to such a small area, which is being rapidly deforested.
This species was rediscovered in June 1992, after an absence of records dating back to 1886.
