Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A large nocturnal species that hunts over open habitats and roosts in wooded areas and manmade structures. Note this species’ ashen-gray face and buff underparts. The Barn Owl is very similar in size and shape, but it has a white face and is paler below. Calls are similar to those of Barn Owl and include a harsh, almost hissing, “shaaaaaa” and a rapid, insectlike clicking.
