A rare owl species was spotted perched on a tree branch in Barangay Sebucal, one of the remote barangays in Oroquieta City situated within Mt Malindang Range Natural Park in Misamis Occidental. The sight of the rare nocturnal bird amazed several teachers who passed by the area for a scheduled educational duty. Check out photos taken by Mie Misperos Calubag via People of Oroquieta.
Here are closer shots.
Could this be the Giant Scops Owl which is endemic to Mindanao?
