General

Information is from dictionaries and other sources. Pinyin reflects Mandarin pronunciation; for some dialect names, it is no more than a polite fiction. Korean glosses are tentative.

Where the Strigidae are popularly called 猫头鹰 māo-tóu-yīng 'cat-headed hawk', the Tytonidae seem to be popularly identified with monkeys, with names like 猴面鹰 hóu-miàn-yīng 'monkey-faced hawk'.

Ornithologists, on the other hand, use direct calques on the English names, including 仓鸮 cāng-xiāo 'barn owl' and 草鸮 cǎo-xiāo 'grass owl'. The term xiāo is almost purely a written, not a popular term.
