Southern [Austral] Pygmy Owl – Spitting Image

Southern or Austral Pygmy Owl

Spitting Image Here’s a brief break from showing my Puma photos. This is a Southern or Austral Pygmy Owl. It was captured in a woodland area in Torres del Paine National Park. I was shocked when finally locating the wee beast in the camera. It instantly reminded me of our local Northern Pygmy Owl. They are the “spitting image” of each other … or pretty close. ~ Anecdote and Southern [Austral] Pygmy Owl capture, Spitting Image © Jerry L. Ferrara
