Small diurnal woodland owl in the mountainous western US and inland Mexico. Scarce and sometimes impossible to locate, but it perches conspicuously irregularly. Cocks will also tail up or sideways. When looking down, look for large black eye-spots on your nape. It primarily feeds on small birds and rodents. Slightly different variations of a set of single or paired toes are provided by different populations.
