I made an early start this morning, arriving at the Royal National Park by 5am. Still dark and quiet, I made my way down Lady Carrington Drive and soon heard the call of a Powerful Owl (Ninox Strenua). As I set up my microphones, a Bassian Thrush (Zoothera lunulata) started singing it's lovely autumn melody and this recording was the result.

Notice in the recording, between 1:30 and 2:10, the owl's call changes. At this time, another owl, presumably the male, flew from a nearby tree to join it's mate.
