For the birds

Dear Editor,

I have enjoyed Donald Attwood’s ‘For the birds’ articles in The Journal, and thought you might be interested in the attached photo. The photo of the Barred owl was taken a couple of years ago on Oakridge Road when the owl flew down about five metres in front of me and picked up a squirrel that was crossing the road, the same one that can be seen in his talons. The owl then sat in the tree for about five minutes watching me and my dog, long enough for me to take out my phone and take this photo. This shows that Barred owls have large appetites or maybe it is just that ‘their eyes are bigger than their stomachs.’ Please keep the articles in The Journal coming as they are interesting and informative. With regards,

Alan Nicol
