Ornithologists have discovered a completely new species of owl.

The species, completely new to science, was discoverd in Oman in the Middle East and is a little bigger than the tawny owl and has been named the omani owl.

Tracked down in a remote mountain region, the owl was first noticed in March this year when it called while researchers were making sound recordings of another species.
