Hi Jen, could you possibly post a higher res image? It's really difficult to determine what owl this is from this small pic.

If I'm not mistaken, there's a hint of ear tufts, which would exclude the Pearl-spotted Owlet, and just based on the GISS, I think I'd put my money on African Scops-Owl (overal greyish owl, light-grey face and head with slight face ring and hint of ear tufts, a bit of barring on chest and along sides of "clean" belly)...
