|Otus clarkii Kelso & Kelso, 1935|
The owl is a nocturnal bird, roosting by day in trees with dense foliage or a thick cover of epiphytes. Hunting is done at dusk and during the night at forest edges. The bare-shanked screech owl tends to often socialize, with family-sized groups being found close together, even during the breeding season.
