It was brought to my attention that I tend to go birdwatching alot. So here is my attempt to document my outings and sightings. I also hope to show photos of as many of my ticks as possible.

Tyto season

Over the past 2 months I've spent a considerable amount of time hunting owls and other night birds. Most trips are unsuccessful but recently I've had a fair amount of luck in the area between Maitland and Barrington Tops. Just by driving the quieter back roads it is quite easy to pick up one or two species, like Barn Owl and Frogmouth. Having reached Barrington, it is possible to pick up several more species like Sooty Owl, Powerful Owl and Boobook.
My best so far was seeing Masked, Barn and Sooty Owls in the one night plus the always present Frogmouths.
Here are some recent pics.
