PIXIE THE NORTHERN PYGMY OWL
Pixie is our resident Northern Pygmy Owl. Pixie came from the Santa Maria/Lompoc area with broken left wing, due to the extent of her injury she is non-releasable.
Northern Pygmy Owls are one of the smallest species of owls, weighing on average only 2.5 ounces. Northern Pygmy Owls are also a diurnal owl species, meaning they are awake and hunt during the day. Northern Pygmy Owls also have two black spots of feathers on the back of their necks that act as fake eyes to deter predators.
