Guatemalan Screech-Owl

A Reference for North and Central American Owls

The Guatemalan Screech-Owl had been previously grouped together with the Vermiculated Screech-Owl. This classification has been recently shown to be improper and clarified. Further studies have clearly separated these owls and the AOU (American Ornithologist Union) has accepted this as its own species. The screech-owls in Central America have been poorly studied and the future will show more divisions in this group of owls. Here on owling.com we have tried to clarify this group. On this page you can find photos, recordings and information to help identify and enjoy this beautiful owl. The Field Notes section includes a North and Central American range map and information on nesting, habitat, description and identification.
