A temporary win.

โ€˜[The Supreme Court Justice] said Wombat Forestcare had established "serious questions to be tried" that planned timber harvesting in the coupe would not comply with VicForests' code, in relation to surveying for endangered mountain skink and three species of forest owlsโ€ฆ.

โ€˜Wombat Forestcare provided written expert evidence to the court last week, which said the removal of wind-thrown trees was highly likely to cause irreparable damage to native animal habitat.  

โ€œLogs are valuable habitat components to threatened species,โ€ the expert statement said.  

โ€œThey should not be disturbed if serious and environmental damage to these species and their environments are to be avoided.โ€ 

When the matter returns to court on October 31, VicForests is expected to provide further evidence on why it determined it unnecessary to complete any surveys for reptiles.

Wombat Forestcare will likely provide more evidence as to why it says VicForests should survey for spotted-tail quolls. 

The 200-member community group will raise money to fund its court case, in particular to cover the cost of expert opinions, while the legal team is working pro bono.
The group has been surveying the forest since it was established in 2006.
In 2021, the Victorian government announced plans for much of the Wombat Forest to become part of a new national park, joining with Lerderderg State Park.

I canโ€™t tell you anything with certainty about this image except that it is riveting. Please fill us in if you have any information. The human visage reminds me of the head of the Colossus of Constantine, parts of which are displayed in one of the Capitoline Museumsโ€”but even it isnโ€™t *this* colossal and, in any case, doesnโ€™t have eroded eye holes.

#owls

In a truly enormous, grey, and very weather-worn sculpture of a human head, the holes representing the pupils of the eyes are eroded and each harbours a small owl. Yet another owl perches on the left side of the huge stone nose.

What is the total list of #nocturnal #birds in #Ottawa? I know of #bats and #owls.

Something flew past one of my cameras at 1AM. It seems to have a tail or something trailing, so unlikely to be a bat. Also, it was not flapping its wings like crazy. My guess is owl, but that is because I only know of two options.

Any help on IDing this UFO?

A barred jungle owlet gets a very different perspective on the world! ๐Ÿฆ‰

Owls have eyes that cannot turn and only face forward, so to compensate, their necks are constructed to swivel nearly 270 degrees in order to allow them to assess their environment.

#Birds #BirdPhotography #BirdsOfMastodon #Owls

A barred jungle owlet is standing on a branch, and has turned its head completely upside down, while still looking at the camera.

Owls' eyes are fixed in their sockets and cannot be rotated.  To compensate, the neck rotates nearly 270 degree side to side and up and down in order for the bird to assess its environment.

Quick #DailyOwlUpdate update!

I chatted with my coworker last week and she confirmed that the owls and owlets are still around and are doing fine but havenโ€™t been easy to photograph because theyโ€™ve left the nest.

So rest easy, the owl family is doing well, but there probably wonโ€™t be any more updates.

If anything more gets posted, Iโ€™ll be sure to share! โ˜บ๏ธ
