Hi KC71

If the photo was taken in Thailand then I suspect it is a Collared Scops Owl.

Your image shows a (Oriental) Bay Owl. Look on the link below for data.

Philip Round in his guide to the Birds of Thailand (co-authored with Boonsong
Lekagul) writes following on the behaviour of this species: "Often perches
one foot above the other on vertical or steeply sloping branches and vines in
forest understorey." Your bird shows this behaviour.
