Natural vocalizations, heard in regenerated secondary forest, forest edge habitats, around 'Reserva ProAves - El Dorado Birding and Nature Lodge'. Bird was first heard around 00:10 hrs. along with the other two species (Mottled Owl (Ciccaba virgata) [Call, 3 hoots, plus last one lowest] and Santa Marta Screech-Owl (Megascops sp.nov.Santa_Marta) [Santa Marta Screech-Owl was further away (Sound Type: Song--fast, high fading hooted trill, 3-5 sec)], bird was recorded around 16 ft. to 32 ft. away from the recordist and bird was between 10 to 17 ft. above the ground. At the end of the recording it seems that the Black-and-white Owl flew to the direction of the Mottled Owl where they appeared to be in conflict.
