If you came out last Friday to Tri County Wildlife Care's Wild About Wildlife Presentation, you were treated to some of our finest Wildlife Ambassadors! Our Education Animals, along with some from Sierra Wildlife Rescue! You may remember the tiny but ferocious Pygmy Owl. The SECOND smallest owl! In these photo you can see her face AND in the second, you can see her camouflage...it looks like her face, but it's the back of her head, which makes her blend very well into tree bark!
Please stay tuned for more photos from our Wild About Wildlife Presentation!
About the Northern Pygmy Owl:
The Northern Pygmy-Owl, like all Pygmy-Owls, is diurnal (active in the daytime). It is a small but very bold and ferocious predator that will attack prey more than twice its size.
PawsPartners.org is an alliance formed between A-PAL Humane Society of Amador County and Tri County Wildlife Care, the latter serving native wildlife in Amador, Calaveras, and Eastern San Joaquin Counties. Since inception we have added the Shelter Partners volunteer group, who support our local Animal Control organization, and Amador County Animal Response Team (ACART).
