Hard times for a Huon local

This morepork, or Tasmanian spotted owl, visited us around the first week of November.

Sadly, it had a damaged wing. It could fly, but with difficulty.

I heard an owl one evening a few days later, so perhaps it hung around.

Having seen this relatively small species of owl, perhaps one day we will see one of these.

Also sighted last week in the same spot as the owl was a spectacular white bird of prey, a grey goshawk, in the Tasmanian white subtype.

Unfortunately the goshawk had an entourage of birds pestering it and didn’t stay long enough for a photo.
