Autillo Grande

El autillo grande (megascops ingens) es como un pequeño búho. Siendo aves nocturnas, normalmente es difícil verlos en el día, pero los siguientes retratos fueron hechos durante el día en La Estrella, Antioquia, Colombia. En ambas ocaciones estaba (o estaban–no sé si es el mismo individuo) perchados en las ramas altas de un árbol sombreado. Suelen vivir entre los 1,400-2,200 msnm en bosques subtropicales y la zona templada baja de la cordillera central de los Andes. (Información del libro Aves de Colombia)

The megascops ingens is like a small owl. A nocturnal bird, it’s usually difficult to see during the day, but the following portraits were all taken in daytime in La Estrella, Antioquia, Colombia. On both occasions, the birds (or bird–I don’t know if it’s the same individual) were perched atop high branches of a shady tree. They usually live between 1,400-2,200 masl in subtropical forests and low temperate zones of the central range of the Andes. (Information from the book Birds of Colombia)
