Elf Owl

Micropallas whitneyi

When evening tips her pallet of exquisitely blended colors over the deserts of Arizona and New Mexico, the elf owls leave their daily retreats and hunt beneath the stars. They are seldom found outside Sahuaro cactus country and few of these candelabra plants are without woodpecker holes wherein the Elves reside.
