The Taliabu masked owl (Tyto nigrobrunnea), also known as the Taliabu owl, or the Sula Islands barn owl, is a species of barn-owl in the Tytonidae family. It is endemic to the Sula Islands, Maluku, Indonesia.

The species is known only from one specimen, an adult female collected in 1938. One recent sighting in 1991 has not been confirmed, leading some experts to doubt its continued existence.
