Really beautiful, your BIF shots are so crisp and sharp, full of detail and nice rendering of the colours.

Love it! I'm very envious. We so rarely see owls here, and never flying in daylight!

Actually No different for you as it was for me when I was based in Melbourne. I had never seen them at all around Melbourne even perched except for 1 tawny frogmouth in a sanctuary and that was over many years!.....It really wasnt till I got to NT that I started to see them frequently. Same for many other birds too actually. Just goes to show how light-on the major capital cities are for some of our wildlife. Another one is sacred Kingfisher. I saw only one in Melb over last 10 years I had lived near the Yarra in Richmond. They have just disappeared of face of the earth down there but up here I saw one the day I arrived and then regularly after that !

Another Owl shot from yesterday. This guy is a regular at Fogg Dam as he has a distinctive funny shaped eye centre .

Yes, he looks a bit cross eyed. I thought that in your earlier photo.

We get plenty of frogmouths around here and lots of sacred kingfishers (though my ability to photograph them is sadly lacking). We had one Powerful owl that was a bit of a celebrity a few years back (not at all common in ACT) who hung around for a few months, and I often hear boobooks, but rarely see them. There are often barn owls reported too, but I've never managed to find one.
