Hi All,
The PO’s at Carwoola have started calling.

There were both the male and female calling last night and also some variations.

The usual call is hoot hoot (ie two sounds with no gap between) and repeated 
with a gap of maybe 10 seconds.

One of the calls I heard last night was a hoot hoot hoot hoot 
.................continuing with no gap at all.  There were other attempts at 
calling that didn’t sound right.  The Australian Museums web site says that 
last years young can remain in the parents breeding area for over a year.

I am suggesting that the variations I heard last night were from a young PO 
still learning the call.
