Haleakala Facts
Pueo (Hawaiian Short-eared Owl)
Asio flammeus sandwichensis

The pueo, or Hawaiian short-eared owl, feeds on small rodents, insects and sometimes birds in the open shrublands of Haleakala. It is most active at dawn and dusk and is often seen flying overhead on cloudy days. The pueo is generally silent, but its call is a muffled bark. This bird is revered as aumakua, a guardian spirit, by many Hawaiians.
