Tiny Peruvian Owl.

Tiny Find

In this undated photo released by American Bird Conservancy, a man
shows a rare bird named in its own genus, "Xenoglaux," meaning "strange owl," due to the long wispy feathers or whiskers that stream out from its reddish-orange eyes in Peru's jungle, January, 2007. An extremely rare species of owl discovered in 1976, and known only from a few specimens caught in nets after dark, has been seen in the wild for the first time.

Such a awsome little specimen.I sure hope this does not mean we will start finding them for pets.Please leave them alone.I recently watched "EXPEDITION BORENO"
Venturing into unknown parts of the universe is great.Just leave the unknown species alone like they did.Finding them is one thing.Leaving them alone is another.
