We tried for 2 other species of Owl but unfortunately the had other ideas - These were the Mottled and the Crested Owl.
The Feruginous Pygmy Owl above gave itself away by calling, it took a little while to find it but when we did he posed perfectly - This was in the Guanacaste area also
Just a few more yards and then we found the Spectacled Owls - a pair of them were sat about 10 feet up in a bush. It doesn't look to pleased, but it was quite relaxed and it kept dozing off. Try as I might I just couldn't get both the Owls in one shot, they were close to each other, but foliage was hiding the other one.
