Pygmy Huntress

The Northern Pygmy-Owl is not much larger than a House Sparrow. It is capable of capturing prey up to and including its own size. Populations in western North America frequently hunt during the day. Their repetitive tooting call, heard in the mountains and canyons of the west, may attract small birds like warblers, wrens and chickadees who will mob around the owl by chittering furiously while keeping an eye on the skilled huntress.
