Central American Pygmy-Owl

A Reference for North and Central American Owls

The Central American Pygmy-Owl has a range that stretches from Veracruz, Mexico to northwestern Ecuador in western South America. Very little is known about this pygmy-owl that was once heaped in a mass of pygmy-owls called “Least Pygmy-Owls”. Central American Pygmy-Owl is readily distinguished from the other pygmy-owls of Central America with its grayish-brown colored head contrasting with its rich brown unspotted back. There is no known overlap with any other pygmy-owl within its Central American range and habitat. Here you can find photos, a Central American range map and information to help identify and enjoy this beautiful owl. The Field Notes section includes information on nesting, habitat, behavior, vocalizations, description and identification.
