Range Description

Otus mentawi is endemic to larger islands of Mentawai, off west Sumatra, Indonesia (BirdLife International 2001). Its status is poorly known, but it may be locally common. Declines are likely owing to habitat conversion, but its ability to persist in human-modified habitats suggests that it is not immediately threatened.
