The Pacific screech-owl (Megascops cooperi) is a species of owl in the family Strigidae. It is found in Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, and Nicaragua. With nocturnal and crepuscular habits, it hunts in clearings — mostly large insects but also other arthropods such as scorpions and small vertebrates like birds and squirrels.
