Ashy-faced Owl

A Reference for Caribbean, North, and Central American Owls

The Ashy-faced Owl is endemic to the island of Hispaniola although is most prevalent and commonly seen on the Dominican Republic side of the island. Since the American Barn owl is also found on Hispaniola but does not cross breed with this owl is further evidence supporting it being considered a unique species. The Ashy-faced Owl has the classic Barn Owl (Tyto) family appearance and was named after its grayish silver face. Here you can find calls, photos, and discussion to help identify this unique species within the Barn Owl family. The field notes section also includes a Caribbean range map and information on nesting, habitat, description and identification.
