Latin of "owl"?

I know that there is a couple of words for owl in Latin language (Noctua, strix, and bubo). However, as far as I know, these are used to refer to a specific type or types of owls. My question is, is there a word to refer to all of the species of owls collectively? (Cicuma?) If there is, I am looking for a word that was used among the people in all times that is different than the scientific name of the owls today.

Thanks for helping!

    I think you can generically say *corvus,i*
    .. Or *corax,cis*
