Austral Pygmy Owl (Glaucidium nana), Lake District, Chile



Ears alert at the slightest sound coming from the canopy above, a stalking Austral Pygmy Owl, Glaucidium nana, turns its head to focus on a potential kill in a temperate rainforest in Lake District, Chile. This small owl is deceptively fierce and powerful for its size, and is well known for hunting much larger prey, especially birds caught by surprise in the foliage, day and night alike.


Los oídos alerta al más mínimo sonido en el ramaje, un acechante Chuncho, Glaucidium nana, gira su cabeza en dirección a una potencial presa en la selva valdiviana en Los Lagos, Chile. Este pequeño buho es engañosamente fiero y poderoso para su tamaño, y conocido por cazar presas de tamaño mucho mayor, especialmente aves capturadas por sorpresa en el follaje, tanto de día como de noche.
