Mountain Pygmy Owl - Glaucidium gnoma Jay Hand 2007-09-22 Big Bend National Park, Brewster County, Texas, Brewster (United States) (1700 m) call -

Bird was calling on its own, unsolicited, from a hidden perch in an oak tree somewhere off the Pine Canyon Trail in Big Bend NP. My recollection of the habitat is that it was rocky and vegetated, neither densely nor lushly, with scrubby and mid-height (30 feet) trees (oak, pine, juniper) and other shrubs and plants. The weather was sunny and warm. Recording was modified only to convert it from its original .WMA format to .MP3.
