They’ve done it again!

Our local, Loddon River Powerful Owls have raised two youngsters again this season. Last year was a mystery – the birds were about but no young were seen. We are so lucky to have this incredible predator breeding successfully so close to town. The possums must be running scared at the moment!

Another unlucky possum … a Brush-tail this time.

    I have a deep fascination with owls and it is a joy to see your posting. Great photos! In our area we listen out for the boobooks and barking owls. To see the powerful owls would be a thrill.

  3. Do these owls eat rabbits? or just possums?
