Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Rarely encountered owl found in cloud forest along the east slope of the Andes. Small with a round head, yellow eyes, white-speckled crown, and white bands on wings and tail. Overall plumage coloration ranges from brown to bright cinnamon. Similar to Andean Pygmy-Owl, but smaller, with a shorter tail that typically shows at most two white bands. Identification should be confirmed by voice; song is a series of three toots repeated every few seconds.
