Flammulated Owl - Otus flammeolus
August 20, 2009
I've recently become addicted to Science Friday. Every now and then I've caught a show on the local NPR station, but have never browsed their website. Now I can't stop browsing their site! The last video I watched on their was about a group of field biologists trying to collect data on the tiny Flammulated owl. Flammulated owls inhabit the montane pine forests of the western U.S. and Mexico. Despite their tiny size, they have low, hoarse voices, and they are highly migratory. As a result little is known about their winter range and foraging habits. You can watch the Flammulated owl video HERE. The watercolor of the tree hugging Otus flammeolus is available in the ETSY SHOP.
