Pacific Screech-Owl

A Reference for North and Central American Owls

The Pacific Screech-Owl can only be found right along the pacific coast from Oaxaca to Costa Rica (maybe only as far north as Chiapas). It is extremely similar to the Oaxaca Screech-Owl that inhabits the northern extents of its range in Oaxaca (see Oaxaca Screech-Owl for comparison of these two species). It has also been compared to the Vermiculated and Western Screech-Owls but, of course, has a distinct call, different markings, and range. Here you can find photos, recordings and information to help identify and enjoy this beautiful owl. The Field Notes section includes a Central American range map and information on nesting, habitat, description and identification.
