Caption: Galapagos short-eared owl (Asio flammeus galapagoensis), 19th-century illustration. This owl is a subspecies of the short-eared owl that is found on the Galapagos Islands. The older genus name Otus is given here. This illustration is Plate 3 from the 1841 volume on birds ('Part III: Birds') that forms part of the multi-volume work 'The Zoology of the Voyage of HMS Beagle'. This work described the animals collected and observed by the British naturalist Charles Darwin during the survey voyage of HMS Beagle during the years 1832 to 1836. This expedition established Darwin's reputation as a naturalist. 'The Zoology of the Voyage of HMS Beagle' was edited by Darwin and published between 1838 and 1843. The volume on birds was written by British naturalist John Gould.
