The Negros scops owl (Otus nigrorum) is an owl, endemic to the island of Negros in the Philippines, belonging to the family of the typical owls Strigidae. Negros 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 hollows in forests of the Philippine lowlands. They were formerly classified as a subspecies of the Philippine scops owl.
