Here is an image from Healesville Sanctuary in Melbourne, during Spirits of the Sky show ... as I was more interested in capturing these birds, I did not pay attention to the Sanctuary staff when they mentioned the name of this Owl ... can someone help with the name?

Very nice shot Rienzphotoz. Nicely done Sir!
Thanks for the kind words Click ... I'm still hoping someone can help me out with identifying the name of that Owl.


Barking Owls are native to Australia, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea.

Barking Owls are most common in savannah woodland, although they also inhabit well-forested hill and riverine woodlands. They are widely distributed throughout Australia, but are absent from central areas. They are found in every Australian state/territory except Tasmania. They are not found in the Centre or western deserts.

Although moderately common, Barking Owls are more often heard than seen (typical of most nocturnal birds). Apart from a bark, they may utter a chilling ‘scream’ when they feel threatened.

The Barking Owl is a medium-sized (35 to 45 cm) hawk-owl. They weigh around 700 grams.

I find the barn owl one of the more enigmatic birds. I've never caught an image of one that dose them justice but I'm fairly please with this one.

The composition and golden tone are lovely -- and I suspect there's a fairy tale to be told  :)

Love all the new posts.  Keep it up.

Here is the newest addition that I'm excited about.  Plan to add set screws above each receptacle and that'll be it.  A very tedious job it was yesterday, holding pieces in place with one hand and welding with the other - a bit haywire but surprisingly straight considering.  The big loops are surplus 3/16" diameter welding wire that's almost like spring steel.  A labor of love.

I've posted this thinking that there may be others that will get similar ideas and benefit.

Great Grey Owl




Excellent work - not sure which one I like better - nice soft background in the first one, great natural setting in the second.  Owls are such amazing creatures and this year's crazy - there's actually a snowy owl in Florida right now :o.

So, is the added spruce tree a benefit or a distraction, anyone?

Thanks a lot, folks.  Yes, owls are really extraordinary creatures and a pleasure to photograph when the opportunity is there.

Truly a benefit.  Has a natural feel now.  would never have guessed this was a mobile setup.  Nicely done!
1DIV, 5DsR, M3 and too many lenses to list.
Too much time, too little gear...scratch that, reverse it.
