Asio flammeus galapagoensis
Taken on the highlands of Genovesa. Will hide in storm petrel cliff nests to ambush upon their return. One of the more diurnal owl species.
Rock cliffs where storm petrels nest; sparse vegetation
Subspecies is endemic to Galápagos. I recommend looking up a video of one of them hunting, it is absolutely fascinating! sorry about the terrible quality, they were far away so I had to take the pictures through my binoculars in failing light.
