Species Description
The Mottled Owl is a sedentary and highly territorial owl common to the dry forests and jungles of Central and South America. This strictly nocturnal bird is an opportunistic feeder that takes advantage of a varied diet, eating large insects, small mammals and birds, snakes and lizards, which it hunts from a perch. The Mottled Owl is a bold bird; not only will it respond to recorded calls of its own, but will come to investigate calls of other owls.
