We report nesting behavior, feeding and development of nestling of Rhinoptynx clamator (Strigidae) in a forest fragment on Campus Marco Zero of Universidade Federal do Amapá. The nest was located on the ground, close to a palm Astrocaryum oleatum and three eggs were observed. These eggs were white whit brown spots and measured 41 x 35 mm in average. Incubation was made by female and lasted 28 days and the last owlet died two days after born. The remaining birds were measured during its development. Feeding items includes Rattus sp., Micoureus cf. regina and Columbina talpacoti.
