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.

Northern Pygmy-Owl (Mountain) - Glaucidium gnoma gnoma Jennifer Miller 2019-05-10 Madera Canyon--Whitehouse Picnic area, Pima, Arizona, United States, Pima (United States)   - Original recording only amplified for eBird protocol. The owl not in the nesting cavity sang once or twice and then the owl in the nesting cavity came out quickly. Immediately after coming out of the nesting cavity, one began calling, presumably the one that had been in the nesting cavity. I presumed the female was the one calling, but I am not certain. A running stream is in the background. 159037561
