This is an image of a Spectacled owl (Pulsatrix perspicillata). The Spectacled owl is a bird native to Mexico, Central America and South America. Like many owls they are nocturnal and have the typical facial structure of many owls, somewhat flat, hooked beak and large eyes.
These owls, like most, eat small mammals and have been known to kill and eat sloths and possums that were significantly larger than they are. Adults can weigh between 1 and 2 pounds on average and are 17-20 inches in length.
