500px / Indian Scops Owl by Rajesh Shah; "...a resident species of owl found in the southern regions of Asia from eastern Arabia through the Indian Subcontinent, except the far north, east across much of Southeast Asia to Indonesia. This species formerly included what has been split out as the Collared Scops Owl (Otus lettia). The species epithet is derived from "bakamuna", the Sinhalese name for the White Barn Owl (Tyto alba), and the Brown Fish Owl (Ketupa zeylonensis)."
