Darwin's Owl "Otus galapagoensis. Birds, Plate 3." In: Charles Darwin, ed. The Zoology of the Voyage of H.M.S. Beagle, Under the Command of Captain Fitzroy, R.N., During the Years 1832 to 1836. London: Smith, Elder and Co., 1835-1843. Many of the species noted by Darwin on the Beagle's voyage were subsequently identified in other parts of the world. In 1859, the Scottish naturalist and publisher William Jardine wrote to Darwin stating his conviction that this owl is the same species as the North American short-eared owl (Asio flammeus), a belief that has subsequently been proven correct. The C. Warren Irvin, Jr., Collection of Charles Darwin and Darwiniana, Thomas Cooper Library, University of South Carolina.
