Owls of North America: Spotted Owl
Some fast facts on the Spotted Owl.
- The lower breast and belly are boldly marked dark brown and white, giving the Spotted Owl its appearance of spots.
- When roosting, a Spotted Owl will sit on a branch, near the trunk, where it is camouflaged against tree bark and shadows.
- Hunting is done mainly at night. Spotted Owls are known to capture 30 mammal species including bats, and 23 bird species as prey. They also eat snakes, crickets, beetles, and moths. (OwlPages)
