Panama Fruit Feeder New Cam Species: Mottled Owl

A Mottled Owl landed on the feeder for a look about. Perhaps it was drawn in by the Orange Nectar Bats that are common nighttime visitors to the nectar feeder?

They roost during the day in the dense cover of tall trees, though at night they often hunt from low perches such as fence posts and road signs. Note the rounded head and the eyes framed with whitish crescents and the overall brown plumage that is streaked below.
