I am a Southern White Faced Scops Owl (Ptilopis Granti ) I came to live with my friends as my previous owner could no longer look after me. I have settled in very well and am enjoying being spoilt and living indoors! I am sometimes referred to as the 'Transformer Owl' If I am faced with a Barn Owl, so not much bigger than me, I puff myself up to look as big as possible, hoping to scare the Barn Owl away. If I see an Eagle Owl I change by elongating my body, flattening my feathers and squinting. This is to mimic a dead branch and hopefully camouflage myself from the larger Owls.
