Cool achlrophyllous mycoheterotroph coming up on the main road near the turn off to the Los Arroyos guard shack (these bases occurred every 15-20 km or so). In fruit, no flower. No doubt a healthy mycorrhizal community in this pine duff/soil

As per communication with Dr. Jaap Vermuelen in 2005, this was an undescribed species at the time, however I am not certain if it has since been described.

Description

These were one of our favorite birds observed on the trip. One morning we decided to go on a guided birding tour at the Arabuko-Sokoke Forest in eastern Kenya. This is one of the species that we were lucky enough to see. When we arrived at the location our guide asked to wait by the vehicle while he checked to see if there was any roosting in the bushes. We waited about fifteen minutes until he returned. He told us it was our lucky day because he had located two pairs. So he then led us in to see them. These cute little owls were perched in a clump of branches about a metre or so off the ground. To see them we had to crouch down and look awkwardly up. To this day my mom thinks that the guide actually placed these little owls there for us to see. Either that or they are puppets. They are quite small owls and are about the size of an American Robin.
