American Barn Owl [incl. insularis or nigrescens]

Tyto furcata [incl. insularis or nigrescens] (= Tyto alba furcata) (Temminck, 1827)

The American barn owl is usually considered a subspecies group and together with the western barn owl group, the eastern barn owl group, and sometimes the Andaman masked owl, make up the barn owl, cosmopolitan in range. The barn owl is recognized by most taxonomic authorities. A few separate them into distinct species, as is done here. The American barn owl is native to North and South America, and has been introduced to Hawaii. Source: Wikipedia
