Mon 28 Mar Powerful Owl Creekside Park Brookfield (Brisbane)
I was woken this morning at 3.30am by my local Boobooks which I see regularly in my Garden. Only they sounded slower and much deeper. As I slowly woke from my sleep I realised that they were not Boobooks but a pair of dueting Powerful Owls! I walked c.100m down to the Park where the birds where displaying to each other in tall trees by the river.
