BIRDS OF THE WORLD BOREAL FOREST - Aegolius funereus - Boreal Owl

As its name indicates this owl is found in northern coniferous and mixed hardwood forests. It is most common in spruce or pine woods; in southern range can be found in stands of aspen. A nocturnal hunter, it usually sits motionless in the branches of trees and bushes during the day.
