A la Lechucita vizcachera también podría llamarsele Lechucita patas sucias, fiel a sus hábitos terrícolas y por el hecho de nidificar en cuevas de tierra es usual verla con las patas embarradas.

Estas imágenes son de Luis y se obtuvieron cerca de Cerro Corá durante la tarde del día 07-09, en dos fotos la lechuza está de espaldas y se puede apreciar como la cabeza está girada casi 180º mirando hacia el lugar desde donde se tomaron las fotos.
