Good Evening Birders, does anyone have opinions on how best to find owls?
ALl the one's I've found have been purely accidental; almost running over a
Barn Owl in Margaret River, bumping into a Tawny Frogmouth in Newtown Park,
suburban Sydney, and then yesterday 2 Boobooks roosting in a cave that I was
looking around in for somewhere to rock climb.
Is it best to wander around at night listening for calls? Is there much
point in looking for them during the day? Often I would think the Noisy
Miners would be onto them, but these Boobooks went pretty much un-noticed.
Otherwise I'll just keep waiting for accidents I suppose.
