SPECIES INFO

The Malagasy Scops-owl (Otus rutilus), also known as the Rainforest Scops-owl, is a species of owl in the Strigidae family. It is found in a large part of eastern Madagascar, but the exact distribution limits between it and the Torotoroka Scops-owl (O. madagascariensis), with which it was long considered conspecific, require further study. The natural habitat of the Malagasy Scops-owl is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests.
