36 Short-eared Owl Mural in Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz Island in Galápagos, EC

Along a wall of the Municipal Cemetery is this vibrant mural of a Galápagos short-eared owl. The street art was painted in 2017 by Clovis Patiño. The artist has additional work displayed at the Charles Darwin Exhibition Hall. This predator lives across the archipelago but is most often seen at Genovesa Island. If you are lucky, you might also spot a Galápagos barn owl on three islands including Santa Cruz. This wall is a frequent canvas for owl paintings. Some locals believe the birds carry souls to heaven.
