Bonaire’s owls, especially the Screech Owl and American Barn Owl, attract attention because of their nocturnal lifestyle, noiseless hunting, and adaptation to diverse habitats. Conservation programs ensure their safety, maintaining a fascinating and respected role in the ecosystem.

Bonaire’s night guard: the owl in its natural habitat.

Bonaire owls are special birds that attract the attention of residents and visitors alike. These birds live in dry forests to cacti and mangroves. Several species of owls can be found, the most common being the Screech Owl and the American Barn Owl. The owl is a nocturnal animal. This means they are active mostly at night and during the day they rest in trees or other shelters. Their large eyes help them see in the dark and their soft feathers allow them to fly almost silently. This makes them excellent hunters. Conservation programs on Bonaire help keep owls safe. With their mysterious appearance and nocturnal habits, they remain a source of fascination and respect.
