Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A small insectivorous eagle-owl that sallies to catch flying insects from mid-canopy perches near openings in lowland forest. Has a distinctive pale belly with large dark spots, a brownish-gray face and back, yellow eyes, and a banded tail. Vocalizations include soft grunts, a short ascending or descending whistled “woooh,” and short trilled calls. Vocalizations can resemble those of other eagle-owls within its range, but Akun Eagle-Owl’s distinctive pale belly and large, obvious spotting on a mostly white chest are unique.
