Two nights back I was woken by a deep hoot, coming from our front yard. It was the unmistakable call of a Powerful Owl – no surprise as a juvenile had ‘called by’ on Xmas eve, allowing a few glimpses before disappearing into the night. I suspect our yard is part of a regular route – a place to seek out a favourite meal of possum. We have both Common Brushtail and Common Ringtail Possums in the garden. The former prefers the safety of a tree-hollow during the day, while our garden Ring-tail shelters in a stick nest, also known as a drey. While watering the garden yesterday I disturbed it from the drey, located at head height in a paperbark.
