Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Medium-sized screech-owl, very similar to Black-capped Screech Owl, but smaller and their ranges marginally overlap. Occurs in both brown and rufous morphs, both with yellow eyes. Found open woodland and forest edge, avoiding dense woodland. The song is a rolling trill, “rrrrrrr-ruh," lasting about 20 seconds.
