Rufous Owls

Interesting observation at the Darwin Botanical  Gardens of a Rufous 
Owl, on a branch about six metres off the gound, feeding on a Flying 
Fox. The owl's mate was beside it.
Rufous Owls are generally very difficult to find in the Top End, with 
few  records in the Darwin region from scattered localities. The records from 
Botanical Gardens where there is only a very small patch of suitable 
habitat is quite remarkable.
