if you do not puff a flash in their eyes, then they do not even pay attention to people.

I would have processed it if I knew what it was. :) Of course, I know the magic three letters ISO, but also very conditional. :) But I will try to honestly fulfill all wishes and instructions!

North American Upland Owl / Aegolius acadicus

In shape and size, these owls resemble a house owl. But there are also significant differences between them. These are, first of all, the densely feathered toes of upy-legged owls, which gave rise to the name of the genus as a whole. Upland owls are also distinguished from the brownie by a noticeably shorter tarsus, relatively loose plumage, pronounced large head and a well-defined facial disc. The huge ear openings of Upland Owls are asymmetric, and this asymmetry also captures the bones of the skull.

The genus includes four species. The most widespread species is the Uplifted Owl (A. funereus). It is found in forests of the northern type in almost all of Eurasia and Canada. A closely related species, the American Upland Owl (A. acadicus), nests in southern North America. The Mexican Upland Owl (A. ridgwayi) is also found here. South America is inhabited by the South American Upland Owl (A. harrisii). The last three species are taken by many bird watchers as one - A. acadicus.
