Megascops ingens (Salvin, 1897)

The Rufescent Screech Owl (Megascops ingens) is a species of owl in the Strigidae family. It is found in Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela. This is one of the larger species of screech owls, similar in size to the White-throated Screech Owl. The overall length is 25 to 29 cm (10-11.5 in) and weight in males is 134-190 grams (4.7-6.7 oz) and 140-273 grams (5-9.6 oz) in females. It is sandy-brown above, vermiculated darker, the facial disc is sandy-brown, without a distinct rim. The flight feathers are barred cinnamon and dusky and the tail is cinnamon with darker brown bars. The hindcrown has buffy-whitish border. It has honey-brown eyes and small ear-tufts. The tarsi are feathered to the base of the toes. Source: Wikipedia
