The Indian Eagle Owl (Bubo bubo bengalensis) is a sub-species of the Eurasian Eagle Owl, formerly known as the Indian Rock Eagle owl. My first run-in with this enigmatic bird was near Mysore’s well-known landmark – Chamundi Hills. My friend saw him sitting on a tree near a quarry, and we had a long tryst trying to photograph him from outside the wire fencing around the hill. The large, orange-yellow eyes, the prominent horns and his large size (not to speak of an impressive wingspan), makes the bird really some viewing.
