Taken in Loja, Ecuador.  This species hunts during the day for songbirds.  Songbird flocks can mob them, alerting you to their presence.

Canon EOS 1D Mark 2 + 600mm F4 IS lens
1/200 sec, f/6.3
Mode: Av
Metering: Multi-segment
Exp comp: -1/3

Once again your artistic eye has beautifully complemented the lovely owl sighting with a wonderful wider view of the setting. Such a lovely composition and excellent shot, Paul!
