Curious about the Boobook Owl: Ninox boobook?

Australian boobook (Ninox boobook), known in some regions as the mopoke, is a species of owl native to mainland Australia, southern New Guinea, Timor, and the Sunda Islands. 

The smallest owl on the Australian mainland, the Australian boobook is 27 to 36 cm long, with predominantly dark-brown plumage with prominent pale spots.

It has grey-green or yellow-green eyes. It is generally nocturnal, though sometimes it is active at dawn and dusk, retiring to roost in secluded spots in the foliage of trees.

They feed on insects and small vertebrates

Breeding takes place from late winter to early summer, using tree hollows as nesting sites.

The International Union for Conservation of Nature has assessed the Australian boobook as being of least concern on account of its large range and apparently stable population.
