Males of this morph have silver-grey upperparts with black streaks and slightly paler underparts with white barring and brown to rufous mottling. Females of this morph are often darker with more rufous mottling.

Females of the subspecies strigoides have a chestnut morph and females of the subspecies phalaenoides have a rufous morph.

Leucistic or albinistic all-white aberrant plumage for this species has been documented.
