Barred Owls aren’t endangered, but they are definitely creating problems for the spotted owl. Good shot, BTW, Andre, looks like it’s winking.

Oops, sorry. If this is about my post, it was directed to Choderboy - both Grey Headed Flying Foxes and Powerful Owls are endangered here. I obviously didn't check the quote was attached to the right post.

The light was harsh after almost two weeks of rain, but I'll take it.

My local nesting Powerful owls. Arrived 5:50am a few days ago. Male arrived at 6:03am and called female out of the hollow. She came out and I became immediately aware Powerful owls are house trained as she sprayed the bush with whitewash as soon as she perched nearby.
She then met up with her mate but I was surprised to seem them move to another branch, then move again. A bit of commotion followed and then I realised there were three adults! She had been mating with more than 1 male in the weeks before she entered the hollow for the first time on May 4 so I assume it was one of the other males. The nesting pair chased off the other male. Fascinating to see but past experience makes me aware that the other male may return once the chick is a few weeks old and try to kill it and the male in a takeover bid.
The mornings observation finished with the male returning into the mangroves for daytime roosting, the path of his flight using the airspace my head was occupying. I ducked just in time. There is no way of knowing if it was intended to be intimidation, a planned attack or it just so happened that I was in his way and he was going to skim over the top of my head.

Female on her way out of the hollow, then with her current mate both looking rather stressed at the intruder.

For more years than I care to remember; the Snowy Owl was one of my nemesis birds. It seemed I could never get a decent shot. They were always too far away or sitting on a roof or chimney.

Then one day a friend called to tell me there was a sighting about an hour and a half from me. So, I jumped in my vehicle and drove to the spot. In less than 15 minutes I got all 4 of these images of this Snowy; who put on quite a show. I was so happy!

All taken with Canon 7D w/EF 400 f/5.6L

Owls are tough for me too. Hard to find in my area. Good for you. Nice shots.
