The Malaysian Wood owl, also called the Brown Wood Owl, is a fairly large nocturnal owl measuring about 15 inches in length with a wingspan of about 30 inches. This owl is dark brown to black in colour with light brown undersides. Its head is rounded with dark eyes surrounded by lighter coloured facial disks. The diet of the Malaysian Wood Owl consists of small mammals, birds, reptiles, insects and fish. The Brown Wood Owl is a shy, nocturnal bird. Roosts during the daytime in a dark, densely foliaged, often rather lofty tree. If disturbed at roost, this owl will compress itself into a shape resembling a stub of wood, while watching through half-closed eyes. If this fails, it will fly off silently. They are particularly vocal on moonlit nights.
