November 24, 2015 – Spectacled Owl (Pulsatrix perspicillata)

Requested by: @francofous

Found in Mexico, Central America, and much of northern South America, these owls are nocturnal hunters. They eat a variety of mammals, including mice, bats, and skunks, as well as may invertebrates, reptiles, birds, and frogs. Nesting in tree hollows, females incubate the eggs. The chicks leave the nest after about five weeks, but continue to receive care from their parents for as long as a year.

Thank you so much!! It looks fantastic! Zorro gives her approval, too!
