Powerful Owl and its dinner
A few weeks ago I spotted a Powerful Owl roosting high on a branch in Manly Dam Reserve. (Blogged.) I’ve seen the bird in exactly the same spot a couple of times since then.
The owl was there again today, so I snapped a few shots. Only when I looked at the photos on my computer did I spot the poor little possum (already demised) that is grasped in the owl’s claws.
