Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small screech-owl known from relatively few sites along the east slope of the Andes from central Peru to Bolivia. The bold dark crescents that border its buffy facial disks separate it from Rufescent Screech-Owl and Cinnamon Screech-Owl. Also note the small ear tufts and star-shaped markings on the underparts. Inhabits lush, ephiphyte-laden cloud forest. Typical song is rapid series of soft whistles (“pu-pu-pu-pu-pu…”), slightly faster than Cinnamon Screech-Owl and lower-pitched than Rufescent Screech-Owl.
