Front view of the skull of a The Boreal Owl (Aegolius funereus) is a small owl. It is also known as the Tengmalm's Owl after Swedish naturalist Peter Gustaf Tengmalm. Other names for the owl include Richardson's Owl, Funeral Owl (latin: funereus), Sparrow Owl, and Pearl Owl (Finnish: helmipöllö). This species is a part of the larger grouping of owls known as typical owls, Strigidae, which contains most species of owl. The other grouping is the barn owls, Tytonidae.
Am at once fascinated and disgusted with this skull and bee ring. It’s too weird to be called ugly so should we say it’s… comical? I kind of like it and the price is not totally outrageous. Will need to go to the McQueen store in NYC to check it out in person.
