West coast highway this morning, five crows mobbing a Barn Owl pretty
aggressively in flight...found it quite disturbing really...a rarely seen bird
(ive only ever seen two)under attack and i reckon he would be lucky to survive
it...my theory is there are too many crows because of human left overs and
rubbish...the authorities have no trouble culling Corellas or Australian wood
ducks on golf courses...does anyone know if they do counts on crows to
determine their obvious overpopulation...they raid nests..rob eggs and attack
fledglings...I would really appreciate any comments or the position of birds
Australia if there is one...also, there is a southern boobook that has been
visiting my back lane recently...got his call nailed and have had two visuals...
