Stygian Owl, Asio stygius, owl, bird, colombia

Stygian Owl (Asio stygius)

When I visited the Arrierito Antioqueño nature reserve (otherwise known as the Chestnut-capped Piha reserve) in Colombia, a great surprise was finding this roosting Stygian Owl (Asio stygius). Getting a half-decent photo proved to be challenging, due to where the bird was perched. I had to balance precariously whilst hugging a tree, trying to find a large enough gap through the leaves and branches, all the while trying to hold the camera steady enough in relatively low-light conditions!
