The Elf Owl is a tiny, short-tailed owl with a round head and no ear-tufts. It was originally known as Whitney's Owl. Local names include Texas Elf Owl and Dwarf Owl. The species name "whitneyi" is a Latinised word formed from the last name of Josiah Dwight Whitney (1819-1896), a prominent American geologist.
