I report the first mid-winter specimen of a Flammulated Owl (Otus flammeolus) from within the USA breeding range of the species, an adult male found freshly dead on 2 January 1996 at Santa Fe, New Mexico following the season's first snowstorm. This event, plus an additional specimen found dead in late autumn within the New Mexico breeding range, supports the argument this species appears unable to successfully overwinter in its USA breeding range.
