Hello, I'm new to this group, my name is William Menq, I'm from Brazil and working with ecology of birds of prey

It is common to see articles, reports, the following sentence:
"It may be preyed upon by larger owls"

There's articles, stories, talking owl which is capable of preying another owl?

I've seen reports of Spectacled Owl eating a Burrowing Owl
Phto (http://www.wikiaves.com.br/85367&p=2&t=s&s=10520)

Someone has reported other predation interactions between owls?

I could read the article because of language differences. But, I can comment on owls preying upon other owls. Great-Horned Owls will eat all other species of owls in it's territory. Barred Owls will prey on Screech owls and other small owls. Some species of owls will prey on their owl species.
