Abstract: The Stygian Owl (Asio stygius) is a vulnerable species which is widespread but localized in Cuba and on the Isle of Pines. This owl is typically found in forested areas, including semideciduous woods and pine forest. It breeds from January to April. The female is more agressive than the male. Wing clapping, a threat display, was more commonly produced by the female. Of the 34 pellets examined, bats represented 61.3% and birds 38.7% of identified remains.
