Last night about 10:30pm I called in two Powerful Owls at Mitchell Park,
Cattai, in Sydney. Fantastic, as always!!! My work colleague, Dave, had
never seen one before. The first evidence of their presence were flight
shadows by our feet. It was a full moon. The distinctive two syllable
call was eminated, with a particular upward inflection on the second
note. Female calling probably. 

I told Dave a story I heard about a man in Victoria who lost his eye
after a Powerful Owl attack. Is this an urban myth or did it actually
happen? Does anyone know? Have Rufous Owls ever damaged anyone?
