Sat 28highlightBarking Owl
Gwyn Rise, Vermont South, Victoria
We observed two owls communicating with each other about midnight. One sitting on the roof of a car parked in the street and the other on the power lines above. They sounded like two small dogs 'barking' at each other. We have also noted that in the last month, we have had a serious reduction in the number of ring-tailed possums in our garden which had seemed to be in 'plague proportions'.
