Sat 31 May Rufous Owl Mary River NP
Went spotlighting with this bird in mind. Finally used playback with no apparent result. Jean gazed directly above her and saw a shape two metres directly above her head. She nervously suggested I should pay some attention to it . . . . .first photos were so close I could only capture half of the bird. Retreated 20 metres. Will fix the red-eye when we make it home next year. Could not capture action of celebratory dance which included maypole/polka/high fives.
