Not the most technically perfect images but I was happy to finally get a shot of a Barred Owl.

You've got them in the USA?

No, sorry- I should give the location I took the picture in the future.

He's on holiday in Australia. He's been posting heaps of Australiana. I'm a bit disappointed he hasn't come to NT. :)

Actually, I'm home. But Australia is much more interesting than Nebraska. Some people would say anyplace is more interesting than Nebraska. Remember the Wizard of Oz? This time of year, Nebraska looks like Kansas at the beginning of the movie- all black & white. Same area of the USA, actually. I'm only an hour north of Kansas.
Here's an image from the movie.

I wish I had time to visit the NT!

TGIAGA (The grass is always greener syndrome) :-P I remember when I first joined the forum and a few folk replied to my threads along the lines of "Wow! I wished I lived in Oz with all your colourful birds and wildlife" This from people like Jeff who were posting pics of wild foxes, pine martens, elk, grizzlies, pileated woodpeckers and amazing raptors! You Yanks are never satisfied! ;-)a;-)a:-)

Jeff? I think he's a Canuck, not a Yank. They have cool animals too. Last year I went to a conference in British Columbia and the place was literally crawling with bears. We also have some nice parks with animals. But I'm in a city surrounded by farms, and people like to hunt the turkeys and deer so it isn't easy to get close to them. It is almost as much effort for me to go to where we have cool critters as it is to go to Australia- the good wildlife sanctuaries are at least 2 hours from me. It is rather flat here too (picture below, last spring just before planting)

It was/is fun to look through my pictures and try to ID the birds and other critters I saw down there.

Back on topic, Tawny frogmouth in Tasmania, Australia. He came out of hiding to dry himself after a heavy rain. I'm sure I wouldn't have found him otherwise.
