Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A charming owl with large dark eyes, bushy white or buff eyebrows, and a buffy mustache. At night hunts woodlands or open areas with large trees; during the day roosts in tree cavities or caves. Its song is a distinctive accelerating soft “hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo…” that has a “bouncing ball” rhythm; occasionally gives a screech. No similar species within its range.
