Koepcke’s Screech-owl (Megascops koepckeae)

I took this photo of a Koepcke’s Screech-owl (Megascops koepckeae) whilst staying at the lovely Andean Spirit Lodge which is near Limatamb0 in Peru. As this owl, a Peruvian endemic, was named after a German biologist, it’s name should be pronounced something like “Kerpke’s“…The lodge is a great place to stay and has a lovely large garden which is full of interesting birds.
