Seen here is an intense close up of an Indian Eagle-Owl’s eyes. The Indian Eagle-Owl, also called the Rock Eagle-Owl or Bengal Eagle-Owl (Bubo bengalensis) is a species of large horned owl found in the Indian Subcontinent. The species is often considered a subspecies of the Eurasian Eagle-Owl (Bubo bubo) and is very similar in appearance. [Source]

They have a deep resonant booming call that may be heard at dawn and dusk. Their diet through much of the year consists of rodents, but birds seem to be mainly taken towards winter. [Source]
