Chouette de Tengmalm - Aegolius funereus - Boreal Owl

PO Scans - Birds of Europe

The boreal owl or Tengmalm's owl (Aegolius funereus) is a small owl in the "true owl" family Strigidae. It is known as the boreal owl in North America and as Tengmalm's owl in Europe after Swedish naturalist Peter Gustaf Tengmalm or, more rarely, Richardson's owl after Sir John Richardson. Due to the boreal owls' shyness and evasive reaction to human activities, nocturnal habits and preferred inaccessible taiga forest habitat, they are rarely seen by humans.
