Guess the first bird ...

Here's a sneak peek at the first bird in this year's Bonanza. This elusive owl, known for its petite size and cryptic plumage, is often found in North America's dense forests. Its name hints at a fiery detail associated with its appearance. On Monday, we'll reveal the identity of this mysterious bird and its preferred nocturnal haunts. Can you guess which owl we're featuring?

Hi Mohammadreza! Our first bird was actually the Flammulated Owl, which gets its intriguing name from its reddish-brown feathers that have flame-like patterns. Thank you for the suggestions for new bird species.
