Hi folks

A report of a Rufous Owl was recently brought to my attention. This bird was
brought to a wildlife rescue service near Merimbula on the far south coast
of NSW!

I too was doubtful, and could only ponder that it was an escapee. But I have
no idea where from. The wildlife rescue lot at Merimbula are at the local
fauna park!

I have yet to see any photos of the bird, but I've requested some and am
still waiting.

The rescue assistant that I emailed was pretty adamant that it was a Rufous
Owl. Down that way it is possible to get powerful, masked, sooty, barking
owls, boobook, and maybe barn owl.
