we can't all be small. I doubt the hollow is at a higher altitude, trees don't
grow at the base. Actually I think and wonder if anyone else has noticed that -
probably have - and whilst in applauding Margaret's & Elisabeth's careful
observations of the kestrels, that Geoffrey's photo adds a real artistic charm
to the Barn Owl, in that the shape of the hollow nicely frames the shape of the
Barn Owl's face. Pure coincidence I'm sure.
hollow would have been lower though.” Or the photographer a darn sight taller.J

That owl photo was from a slide
more than 10 years ago. I remember seeing the owl one afternoon, and going
home to get a camera to snap it. It was only there for a few days,
roosting probably. Over later years I would glance into the hollow from
time to time, but don’t recall finding anything. The hollow was indeed at
about the site of Margaret’s kestrel operations, so I’m sure she has correctly
identified it. The hollow would have been lower

Dear G, E, J, P & P,
Have a look on page 89 of “birds of Canberra gardens” at
Geoffrey’s photo of a barn owl and look very carefully at the nest hollow.
After the time I spent at that tree last spring, I would recognise that hollow
anywhere. I wonder whose tree it will be in 2012?
