A newly discovered owl species lives on just one Indonesian island and whistles a one-note “song” that rhymes with the name of its island. The Rinjani Scops owl is found on the island of Lombok, according to a paper published in the latest PLoS ONE. Its song sounds like “pok.” (Although sometimes it makes a “pooook” sound too.) Its scientific name is Otus jolandae, after the wife of a researcher.

Owls are probaly my favorite bird species so Im glad they found another one. My favorite is the barn owl, years ago I volunteered at our local nature center and they had a pair. Just beautiful.
