Spectacled Owl

Pulsatrix perspicillata

These tropical owls nest in tree cavities and use their namesake discs of facial feathers to direct sound to their ears. One ear is slightly higher than the other, providing the owl with precise information on prey such as bats, insects, frogs and other small creatures.
