Stygian Owl

A Reference for Caribbean, North and Central American Owls

The Stygian Owl of the Caribbean, Central, and South America is closely related taxonomically with the North American Long-eared Owl. The similarity seems to end here. Unlike its Long-eared Owl cousin, the Stygian Owl is a sedentary (non-migratory) specialist feeding on flying prey. It is a ghost of the night that is rarely seen with scant research and a barely known biology. Having a large distribution area, it seems this owl really occurs only in small pockets. Here you can find photos, calls and information about this mysterious and poorly studied phantom of the night.
