Unwise Barking Owls give up hollow victory
Big grove of big trees full of big, big holes. So where does Barking Owl (Ninox connivens) plonk an egg? Bang in front of any casual passerby - at eye level with the resulting owlet.
Bird or birds then draw extra notice to that boo-boo by messing about on the ground close to hollow long after sunrise.
No wonder their little guy sees world with somewhat jaundiced eye.
And they're a bit tardy with garbage removal. Just as well they've got me to hide their blushes!
