Tiny, but fierce....

Northern Pygmy-Owl in Arbutus.  Acrylic Painting.  SOLD

Northern Pygmy-Owl records from our place are commonest in the fall months, presumably when young birds are dispersing.  This bird was found in an Arbutus tree beside the pond last September.  They are fun to paint because of their tiny size coupled with their apparent ferocity.
