Eastern Grass-Owls eye intruder

Might be last sightings of Eastern Grass-Owls (Tyto longimembris) for a while as tail end of Cyclone Dylan drenches swamp ricegrass habitat at the western end of the main Tyto Wetlands lagoon.

Male takes close look at intruder in his territory before the rains came.

Larger, more richly coloured female sets off for another ground-roosting spot.
