The barking owl (Ninox connivens), also known as the winking owl, is a nocturnal bird species native to mainland Australia and parts of Papua New Guinea and the Moluccas.
They are a medium-sized brown owl and have a characteristic voice that can range from a barking dog noise to a shrill woman-like scream of great intensity.
