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.
