The Camiguin hawk-owl or Camiguin boobook (Ninox leventisi) is an owl species of the Philippines island Camiguin. It was previously known as a subspecies of the Philippine hawk-owl, but only reclassified in mid-2012, as voice and other evidence suggested it a distinct species.[2] Its native name is kugkug.
