Fledged July 27. It's a big chick, assume due to being an only child. It seems quite used to me now, it has a bit of a look when I arrive but soon loses interest in me and either investigates other birds or sources of noise, or just goes back to sleep.

This morning it was seeing what leaves taste like:

These are Powerful Owls (Ninox Strenua). Australia's largest owls.

Thanks. I should have pointed out that Powerful is their name and Powerful is what they are.

Junior with mum and dad yesterday:

Today with mum behind and dad just out of frame to the left. Appears to be a few adult feathers appearing on lower belly.
