Elf Owls are overall gray-brown with white spots on the shoulder and a white bar at the wrist. They are roughly 13 cm (5 inches) tall and have long wings and short tails. Their primary projection extends nearly past their tail. They have fairly long legs and often appear bow-legged.
The Elf Owl (Micrathene whitneyi) is a member of the owl family Strigidae that breeds in the southwestern United States and Mexico. It is the world's second smallest owl, the first being a Pygmy owl. It is the same size as a sparrow. The scientific name commemorates the American geologist Josiah Whitney.
