Hi All,

I know many birders on this list have either visited or are very interested in 
the birds of Papua New Guinea. I got an email last night from the managers of 
Walindi Resort on New Britain, a well known birding destination - yesterday 
they found a dead Golden Masked Owl on their property. According to Guy 
Dutson's excellent guide on the birds of Melanesia this species is known from 
only two field sightings and a handful of specimens, so this is quite a find!

They have emailed me some photos of the bird which I'd be happy to forward on 
to anyone interested.
