Asio Flammeus is the Latin name for a Short-eared Owl, a species of typical owl. The owls that belong to the genus “Asio” are known as eared owls as they have tufts of feathers that resemble mammals ears. The “ear” tufts may not always be visible but the Short-eared owl will display them when in a defensive pose. The word flammeus is Latin for “flaming, or the color of fire”. Short-eared Owls are found in open country, marshlands and grasslands and this little beauty was photographed on the Nanaimo River Estuary, Vancouver Island, BC, Canada.
