Long-Whiskered Owlet

The Long-whiskered Owlet (Xenoglaux loweryi) was rediscovered after 35 years of being presumed extinct. One of the smallest owls in the world, it can be easily found in the Abra Patricia-Alto Nieva zone. This owl is the size of a clenched fist and can barely be seen with the naked eye, since it camouflages with its branches and moss habitat. In order to observe it we use a technique known as play-back and depend on our experienced guides to help us observe the owls briefly with a focused flashlight.
