The Owl is small specie of genus of pygmy owl, measures 15.5 to 18 cm. The crown has many white streaks and the underside is white with brown or red-brown streaks.
This pugnacious owl is most active at night, but it is also active during the day, especially at dawn and late afternoon. Owls are superbly equipped to hunt at night. They cannot see in total darkness, but their eyes are adapted for vision under very low light conditions. Even more impressive is their sense of hearing since they can locate their prey by sound alone, in total darkness, with pinpoint accuracy.
Habitat & Range: Canopy’s and edges of deciduous and evergreen forests, woodlands, secondary forests, coffee plantations, suburban areas with large trees for nesting serve them.
In Costa Rica, the Owl is fairly common in the lowlands of the north-west, reaching south to the hills above Parrita and the Central Valley regularly coming to Paraiso in the east and sometimes to Turrialba. It is found from sea level to 1,500 m.
