Pueo

Based on the amazing suggestion from this Facebook post I painted the #Pueo witch is another endemic Hawaiian Bird. Pueo is the Hawaiian name for the short-eared owl that is also in the group of the endangered species, particularly in O’ahu. In contrast with other owls, they are active throughout the day. The Pueo are often killed by cars in a possible attempt to hunt by going after the headlights. Drive safely if you encounter this beautiful bird in the road!
