Bubo magellanicus

The lesser horned owl or Magellanic horned owl is a large owl of the genus Bubo found in southern South America, extending north to the central Andes. It has traditionally been classified as a subspecies of the great horned owl, but is now treated as a separate species based on differences in voice and size and because of the genetic distance between the two.
