My son made a tragic discovery yesterday morning.  He found a freshly killed
Powerful Owl on the side of the road near our house in Mangerton
(Wollongong).  The owl died with a Pied Currawong tightly clasped in its
talons.  It appears that the owl had been struck and killed by a car.  I
have never recorded a Powerful Owl in the suburbs before.  There is a small
reserve in the area, so perhaps the owl had flown out from there to hunt.
