The Palau owl (Pyrroglaux podarginus) is a species of owl in the Strigidae family. Formerly united with the scops owls in Otus, it is now placed in its own genus Pyrroglaux. The Palau owl is dark reddish brown with small white dots scattered across it's feathers. Palau owls are found in woodland and lagoon trees, ravines and mangrove swamps in the Pacific Palau Islands. It nests in hollows of trees, lives in groups and is territorial.
