|Thaimaçu, Pará, Brazil
The Amazonian Pygmy Owl is distributed from south-east Venezuela and the Guianas through Brazil to south-east Peru and northern Bolivia. It is found in the upper storey of humid forest and this bird was in very tall terra firme forest.
|We heard its distinctive voice during the day but it took us almost an hour to track down where it was coming from. The photo shows little distinguishing features but it is tiny at 14cm (5½") with greyish-brown plumage
