The Sri Lanka Bay-Owl is a medium-sized nocturnal bird measuring about 9.8 to 11.8 inches in length and weighing around 0.5 pounds. It looks bulky and has short legs, a tail, and wings. The facial disc is heart-shaped. The upper parts are dark brown and spotted. The lower parts are buff with scattered black spotting. Its call is a quavering multi-element whistling sound.


The Sri Lanka Bay-Owls are distributed in South India and Sri Lanka. They inhabit humid evergreen and semi-evergreen forests, wooded hillsides, deciduous forests, mangrove forests, and degraded forests. They occur from lowlands to 1000-meter elevations.


The Sri Lanka Bay-Owl feeds on small rodents, mice, rats, bats, birds, lizards, frogs, beetles, and other large insects such as grasshoppers.


Habits and Lifestyle

The Sri Lanka Bay-Owls roost in the cavities of tree trunks in the daytime and commence their activities in the dark of the night. They prefer to remain detached from flocks, but sometimes they form pairs and stick with family members. Hooting is normally witnessed while establishing territories, warding off intruders, or even alluring mates. This species does not know how to migrate. In times of food shortages during winter, they do fly to the southern parts, but the process is termed irruption, not migration.

Mating Habits

The Sri Lanka Bay-Owls are monogamous. The ideal breeding season is springtime. Males engage in courtship, and actions like aerial movements, calls, and offers of food are common gestures for alluring female owls. Copulation takes place once the females accept food. After successful breeding and nest construction, the females incubate the eggs for about 30 days after which the males take to feeding the owlets.

The Sri Lanka Bay Owl – an Elusive Species Found Deep in the Rainforests of Sri Lanka

The Sri Lanka Bay Owl (Phodilus assimilis) is a species of bay owl in the family Tytonidae. It is endemic to the island of Sri Lanka and the Western Ghats in Kerala, South-Western India. It was considered a subspecies of the Oriental Bay Owl (Phodilus badius) but is now treated as a full species due to its distinctive call, plumage and disjunction distribution.

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist montane forests and subtropical or tropical high-altitude grassland. It is threatened by habitat loss.

The Sri Lanka Bay Owl was described by the English politician and naturalist Allan Octavian Hume in 1873 but it was only in 1877 that he introduced the binomial name Phodilus assimilis. The genus name Phodilus is from the Ancient Greek phōs for “light” or “daylight” and deilos for “timid” or “cowardly”. The specific epithet assimilis is the Latin for “similar” or “like”.

It was earlier considered a subspecies of the Oriental Bay Owl Phodilus Badius but is now treated as a separate species based on differences in call and plumage.

Their call is almost “un-owl like” given its almost whistling pitch and melodious tune. When visiting the deep tropical rainforests of Sinharaja and Kitulgala one might hear this distinctive call at night. But seeing one in its day roost is a completely different story.

Many seasoned birders have rarely seen this extremely shy and elusive bird, who is found very rarely even in these parts.

The Sri Lanka Bay Owl is by far the rarest and most difficult species of owl in Sri Lanka to see.
