Eastern Grass-Owl found at last, alas

After years of searching without luck in Tyto Wetlands and elsewhere for the Eastern Grass-Owl (Tyto longimembris) an unhappy find today: dead bird by the road to Wallaman Falls.

Hi Barbara: Yes, a bit sad. Though good news was learning the birds are possibly breeding in the area of the road death (possibly in two young teak plantations: heavily overgrown with weeds).
