RIP powerful owl

Saddened to report the road death of a powerful owl on Nov 26 at Barrenjoey and Karloo intersection.

Quite possibly this is the owl we have been monitoring in the reserve since 2017. A solitary bird, it fed on bats and possums .

Please report any sightings or deaths to Northern Beaches council . Any bodies are collected and taken to Taronga zoo for autopsy to aid in research.

These birds are threatened and their habitat destruction is a main contributing factor.
