Dark female Grass Owl stood without concern as I gradually moved very close and didn't move away even when all light was taken off her.
Different story with Barn Owl. Fled its post after just a few quick shots from the cab of the Troopy.
And this male Grass Owl didn't hang around long when flushed in Tyto Wetlands the other morning. Recent sightings suggest last year's breeding pair in Tyto are not together right now. But their swamp ricegrass habitat is still too flooded for creation of grass tunnels and breeding sites.
