Cuban Pygmy Owl

A Reference for North and Central American Owls

Cuban Pygmy-Owl is one of the two endemic owls found in Cuba. It is also the smallest owl found in the country. There are two color forms of the Cuban Pygmy-Owl. The gray-brown form is by far the most regularly seen although there is also an uncommon rufous form. Of the three small owls found in Cuba the other endemic Bare-legged Owl is much larger and has, as its name implies, long bare legs. Burrowing Owl is another small owl found in Cuba but it is rarely found in the trees where the pygmy-owl would be seen.

Very little research is published on this owl. Here you can find photos, calls, and discussion about this endemic and beautifully colored owl.
