Unspotted saw-whet Owl (Aegolius ridgwayi) occurs from southern Mexico to Panamá and is closely related to Northern Saw-whet Owl (A. acadicus) of North America and northern Mexico. Unspotted Saw-whet Owls live in highland woodlands and forests mostly above 2000 m (6500 ft). The highland of Guatemala and the neighboring Mexican state of Chiapas is one of the core areas of distribution.
Unspotted Saw-whet Owl is widespread throughout the Guatemalan highlands. It is nocturnal and feeds on rodents and insects. Knut Eisermann and Claudia Avendaño of CAYAYA BIRDING have been studying Unspotted Saw-whet Owl since 2009.
