Austral Pygmy Owl
Brown, Grey, and Rufous morphs known (not all sources differentiate grey from brown). In all forms, this species has relatively small eyes and long tail with relatively many pale bars; birds from some areas have wider pale than dark bars.
Has in the past been considered a part of Ferruginous Pygmy-Owl but now separated based on both DNA evidence and differences in vocalizations other than song.
Active at night but also sometimes during the day.
