Species: Pearl-spotted Owlet (Glaucidium perlatum)

Location: Southern African Wildlife College, Mpumalanga, South Africa

A pearl-spotted owlet begins getting active as sunset approaches.

The pearl-spotted owlet is one of Africa's smallest owls and is also a lot more diurnal than most other owls, often beginning to hunt well before sunset. Its distinctive whistling call is a pleasant sound to hear when out in the bush.
