Devin Jaffe of Nature’s Educators describes the eastern screech owl, which are small crepuscular raptors. These birds tend to have a lighter colored beak than their cousins, the western screech owl. The facial dish of this type of owl is formed so that the feathers help filter sound into their asymmetrical ears. The left ear is slightly higher than eye level and the right ear is slightly lower which helps the owl to triangulate where a sound is coming from.
