Flammulated Owl

One thing about a Flammulated owl is they are only 7 inches long! The sound these owls make are a low pitched whoop-WHOOP! One more fact is Flammulated owlets can fly within 25 days from their birthdate. During the winter Flammulated owls migrate to places where insects are very common
