Barn Owls (and Tawny Frogmouths) are among the most common bird victims of cars. If indeed the timing was then, that aspect is probably unusual. They can get flushed out of their daytime roost by a range of things. This may have happened.

Yesterday at 1645, 15 kms east of Temora on Burley Griffin Way, there was a recently killed Barn Owl.  From the appearance of the injuries, the fact that it had not been run over since the original hit, and that I’m pretty sure it wasn’t there when we went out, I think the accident must have occurred between 1430 and 1630 in full daylight.


Isn’t this a bit unusual?
