Being mostly nocturnal, getting to see owls in the day time takes a lot of searching the thick tree limbs that they roosting, and a whole lot of luck. Jeanne spotted this very small Pearl-spotted Owlet while we had stopped to look at a huge Kudo bull. This bird is about 10 inches tall, so it was a huge find for us. The interesting thing about this little owl, is that it appears to have eyes on the back of its head. There are two black spots right on the back of its head where the eyes would go.
