Mixed blessing seeing owls by day

Mixed blessing finding night birds by day as in today's find of Southern Boobook (Ninox novaeseelandiae) in Leichhardt tree in Tyto Wetlands. Too much light and shadow.

In Tyto carpark three days ago, too much bottlebrush surrounding Eastern Barn Owl (Tyto javanica).

And too much paperbark around Barn Owl at Mungalla Station.

Meanwhile, hunt for Grass Owls found  only Large-tailed Nightjar (Caprimulgus macrurus) on  track.
