The Philippine scops owl (Otus megalotis) is a common owl, endemic to the Philippines, belonging to the family of the typical owls Strigidae. Everett's scops owl and Negros scops owls were formerly considered conspecific.
Philippine scops owls prey at night on insects. They live alone or in monogamous pairs. They breed throughout the year, laying clutches of 1–2 eggs. They nest in tree holes in lowland forests of Luzon, Catanduanes and Marinduque.
