We have some beautiful powerful owls in Yarra Bend National Park in Kew, Melbourne. One warm summer's night, I peered up and not 2 feet away from me were a couple of huge eyes, quietly staring. It was one of these owls. I love the way they eat the possums as these animals have slowly overrun the park and destroyed almost all the introduced foliage.

I teach third grade and one of my favorite units is on owls. Every year the students choose one owl to research and they all get to dissect a pellet. This year we have a full moon owl walk planned. Thank you for the wonderful site.

Great website! I have been listening to a Barred Owl at nights since November. Never have heard one in my 40 yrs living in Smyrna. One night I heard 3 of them and was able to spot one with a flashlight one night. Beautiful.

we live at the base of Harvey Mt. for 23 yrs I have owls
all the time , see them in the daytime and hear them at night year round Why? Seems like an invasion! Its cool but
is this area known for a large population? Thanks

I very much appreciate your web site on owls. Within our local area a warning was issued to pet owners suggesting to keep smaller pets indoors during dust and night time when owls commonly hunt their prey. Due to this official recommendation we keep our three cats indoors during hours when owls commonly hunt prey on a "just in case basis". Last summer I saw a crow swoop down and pick up a small wild kitten whereupon the crow took the kitten up into a tree and began eating it which surely surprised the heck out of me. I would like know more about owls preying on snakes and what varieties of snakes specific owl species seek out and the types of snakes owls don't prey upon.
Anyway, you have a wonderful site on owls - "thank you!"

On the property is an old horse stable...in the riding arena we have a barred owl that has taken residence. My so. Has named him Oliver....a real treat to get a close-up daily view of a beautiful bird. Hard to believe sometimes I am paid to do this job!

Hi, just wanted to say this is a really cool site! I heard an owl tonight, didnt know what kind. By listening to calls on this page, I figured out that it was a great horned owl. Thanks!

Recently a Barred owl was spotted in our Whitemud Ravine. It was a beautiful bird to see. I only saw the Newspaper article myself. I am beginning to paint birds, owls are the best.

Just want to say how helpful this site is. My parents currently have two owls living in their rainforest garden. And wanted to let you know how great it was to be able to identify them so easily. The are Rufous owl and are spectacular. Thanks

Just had 4 owls land in various parts of our back garden. Seemed to be travelling in a pack, if this seems normal? Hung around until our dog freaked them out, then just flew 50 metres out into the street, sat there, and so on

Thanks for the great information! My students read a paragraph on owls, and couldn't wait to study them. You have saved me so much time by providing such a great website for researchers! Thanks so much!

I have just return from a holiday in Riveria Maya Cancum Mexico a tiny owl about the size of a european sparrow flew into a closed window at the hotel and played dead. Could it have been an Elf Owl do they winter at this location. It did recover and fly away
