Cinnamon Screech-Owl

Megascops petersoni

 

Owlet Lodge, Abra Patricia, San Martín, Peru.

 

This species, restricted to the east slope of the Andes in southern Ecuador and northern Peru, was only described in 1986. Birds resembling this species have recently been observed in the northern part of the central Andes of Colombia, but right now it is unclear if it is the same, or an undescribed taxon.
