Screech owls normally range in color from gray to rusty brown, with distinct, buttercup-yellow irises. Albino owls, however, have pink skin around their eyes, whose color can range from pink to a dark cherry-red. Pink toes are another indicator of albinism in owls. (Snowy owls are often confused with albino owls, but snowy owls have black specks on their lower bodies and golden eyes that are ringed with black skin.)

This is a small owl (24 cm.) with prominent ear tufts. ollared Scops-Owl hunts at night, waiting from a low perch for small vertebrates or large insects, which it then pounces upon. During the breeding season the male calls persistently a rising “woop”, while females give a descending “wheoo” or “pwok”. These small owls usually nest in a natural tree hollow or woodpecker hole, and will also use nesting boxes. In Taiwan the Collared Scops-Owl is fairly common in forested areas, including treed areas near towns…
