Least Pygmy-Owl

Glaucidium minutissimum (zu Wied, 1830)

The East Brazilian Pygmy Owl (Glaucidium minutissimum), also known as Sick's Pygmy-owl, is a small owl in the typical owl family. It has been argued that the here used scientific name actually belongs to the Pernambuco Pygmy Owl, in which case the East Brazilian Pygmy Owl should be referred to G. sicki (König & Weick, 2005). This has not gained widespread recognition. Source: Wikipedia
