The scops owl is a nocturnal bird and lays eggs in the holes of old trees.

Scops owls are about 20cm long with a grayish-brown body. Some scops owls are reddish brown. They have long ear tufts but don’t have toe feathers. Scops owls are migratory birds that visit Korea during the summer. They live in hills, parks, forests, temples, and around private houses. In the breeding season, from May-June, they sing (or rather hoot) all night from sunset to dawn. In cloudy weather, they even sing during the daytime. They lay 3-4 white eggs inside tree holes. They mainly eat insects, but also small birds and mice. They live all over the Korean Peninsula and can be found in Spain, Japan, Africa, and Southeast Asia worldwide.
