(Ptilopsis granti) is a fairly small owl in the family Strigidae.
It is native to the southern half of Africa. It was formerly regarded as a subspecies of the Northern White-faced Owl
(P. leucopsis) but the two are now commonly treated as separate species. The upperparts are grey with dark streaks and there are white spots on the scapular feathers. The underparts are whitish with dark streaks. The face is white with a black border and black around the large orange eyes. The head has two short "ear" tufts with black tips. Juvenile birds have a greyish face.
