Today, i went down to Reedy Lake, Leopold, Victoria (Moolap Station Rd) for lunch.
I was standing on the mound at the end of Moolap Station Rd, when i saw a large white bird leap from the bushes, being harrassed by some magpie larks.
I put my scope on it and it was a Barn Owl! (i think). It flew across the road and towards the swamp, where it swooped three Brolga's grazing in a burnt out area next to the swamp. The Brolga's ducked their heads in cover, and the Barn Owl flew up and landed in a tree on the edge of the swamp.
Is anyone able to tell me what the likelihood would be, of it being a masked or grass owl? What features distinguish the three species?
