The Spectacled Owl is primarily a bird of tropical rain forests, being found mostly in areas where dense, old-growth forest is profuse. This species is largely nocturnal, starting activity right around the time of last light at dusk and usually being back on their roosts for the day around first light. It is a solitary, unsocial bird, usually roosting singly each day and only peaceable associating with others of their own species for reproductive purposes.
Spectacled owls (Pulsatrix perspicillata) are distinctly colored medium-sized owls with dark brown bodies and very white to yellow-ochre colored bellies. They have a white line outlining their chins. Their name comes from the white color surrounding their eyes that resembles eyeglasses, or “spectacles”. Spectacled owl babies have markings that reflect he exact opposite of their parents, with white bodies and dark faces.
