From its preferred nesting environment—a scrape constructed within a rocky cliff or outcrop—this pharaoh eagle-owl scans the terrain.
Its bright yellow eyes are characteristic of the species.
The birds are generally found in arid habitats of North Africa and the Middle East and are efficient nocturnal predators—even scorpions are on its menu.
