Ever since the leaves came back on the oak tree, I have been looking for the owl/s. A Powerful Owl was roosting yesterday, clutching a half-grown possum. I hadn’t seen it when we walked up the road but, on the way back, Vika spotted the possum’s stomach pouch on the ground underneath.

I was thrilled that the oak will be a regular daytime roost again this year. From the amount of scat on the ground underneath, this morning, I think both owls may have been there and I hadn’t seen it due to the thickness of the foliage. No owls this morning, though.

I didn’t have time to go back and take photos yesterday, nor could I as I think I have locked the aperture setting on my camera or it is set to flash every time and the flash will not come up – not sure. I haven’t had time to go through the manual and undo whatever I did to it. I was playing with a button and turning a dial. I doesn’t seem to be the SD card.

These are old owl photos, from Autumn, with the Nikon D3000 SLR

Thanks for looking and I am really sorry for slacking off on the blogging.  🙂

    Your excused, it’s not as if you were doing nothing. Don’t know how you get so much done. Welcome back to the owls, messy eaters though, or maybe they hadn’t finished yet and hadn’t had time to clear the scraps away. Hope the camera works out. Should be a button you can push to send it back to it’s original settings (a before the human fiddled with it button).

    • Yeah, well I’ve got my ‘Nikon D3000 for Dummies’ book, now, and I will need it!
      Yeah, I look for bits lying around underneath the tree. Vika has a sensitive nose so she spots the icky bits.
