Selva Biological Station,
Costa Rica - April 2008
Vermiculated Screech-Owl was found at the La Selva Biological Reserve
in Costa Rica. This species of owl was previously grouped together with
the Guatemalan Screech-Owls. The appearance of the two species is different
with the Vermiculated Screech-Owls having heavier vermiculated underside
markings and no dark facial rim. Vocal differences are primary in separating
these two species.
