The Owl Pages

Ed McNabb


Ed McNabb is a wildlife ecologist with a special interest in nocturnal fauna. He began recording wildlife vocalisations in the 1970's during his long-term study of the Powerful Owl in Victoria's Dandenong Ranges. Whilst in the bush for long hours at night, the many mystery night calls intrigued him and he found the best way to memorise the calls was to record them.
