Pygmy Owl

Pygmy Owl is the smallest owl in Europe. You can find this bird all over Estonia, we have about 600-1200 breeding pairs. Pygmy owl is active during the sunset and sunrise, before and after the other owls. They usually are not afraid of people so Pygmy Owl is easy to watch for longer time and quite close. Best time for watching Pygmy Owl is March- May and also September- October, during these periods Pygmy owls protect their territories.
