Spectacled Owl

A Reference for North and Central American Owls

The Spectacled Owl is very distinctive and unlikely to be confused with any other Central American Owl. It can found in both Central and South America. In Central America, the owling.com covered region, two separate races are accepted. The northern most race can be found from southern Mexico to the Pacific coast of southwestern Panama. The southernmost race can be found from E. Costa Rica to Ecuador. The differences between these races is that the northern race has light baring on its chest and belly and the southern race does not. Here you can find photos, a Central American range map and information to help identify and enjoy this beautiful owl. The Field Notes section includes information on nesting, habitat, behavior, vocalizations, description and identification.
