Chaco Owl - such a fun fella D75_6013.jpg

The Chaco Owl is found in South America in the Gran Chaco region of Argentina & Paraguay. The area is sparsely populated, dry, semi-arid with thorny shrubs, cacti & small groups of trees.

 

They prey mainly on small birds, mammals & other vertebrates, but will also feed on insects, spiders & scorpions. They are predominantly nocturnal hunters starting from dusk. Daytimes they roost mainly in dense bushes or trees, sometimes on the ground.
