The birdwatching highlight of my weekend eating and drinking in the Yarra Valley was my second ever sighting of a Powerful Owl. It was sitting in a tree at the back of our motel which was near Healesville Sanctuary, about 6m off the ground, watching me intently. I looked around for a possible mate but didn't see any. The motel owner knew enough about birds to know that a powerful owl was something pretty good, and mentioned that his wife had been hearing a "different sounding" owl at night recently. Didn't see much else in the way of birds as the weather was a bit wet, apart from a couple of lovely rufous fantails and lots of white-naped and yellow-faced honeyeaters.
