Tropical Screech-Owl

A Reference for North and Central American Owls

The Tropical Screech-Owl is distinctive with its boldly black outlined facial disk. Since this owl is primarily insectivorous (an insect eating owl) pesticides are of concern and likely problematic to the species survival. Like most screech owls, positive identification is best done by their calls. The occurrence of this species within our covered raged range is Costa Rica and Panama of which only one of the nine currently accepted races exists. Here you can find photos, calls, 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.
