A temporary win.
‘[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 owls….
‘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.
“Logs are valuable habitat components to threatened species,” the expert statement said.
“They should not be disturbed if serious and environmental damage to these species and their environments are to be avoided.”
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 can’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 Museums—but even it isn’t *this* colossal and, in any case, doesn’t have eroded eye holes.

Two Barred Owl fledglings sending out "begging calls" on a tree branch. I've shared a few photos of these two before, and you can find a full write up and a video of them here:

Thought I'd do an #introduction
I'm Ellie, a #ceramicist specialising in #birds and #wildlife
I am #actuallyautistic and trying to be brave by branching out into the big wide world a little more.
Figured the best introduction would be one showing off my newest piece out of the kiln, this tree full of the #owls of the UK.

Good morning, Flying into Tuesday with 'Smokey', one of the Great Grey Owls at Suffolk Owl Sanctuary. Sorry about the black mark to the top right of the photograph. This is what happens when an inconsiderate family turn up late and park their push chair directly in my eyeline... oh some people... 🙄
Have a great day. 🦉📸

Have a lovely day,
'Kruger' one of the daredevil Mackinder's Eagle Owls at Suffolk Owl Sanctuary last Sunday. Decided he wanted to have a fly around despite being a bit windy.... 📸 🦉

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?
During the summer months we hear lots of owl especially during a full moon, hope you enjoy this one called "The Bright Eyed Owl!!"

I'm not sure that #owls would make great detectives. They only ever ask, "who". However, what, when where, how and why are also important questions to ask.
New review: A hoot of a book, What an Owl Knows is a readable, captivating, and touching science narrative of owls and those who study them.
I am watching you!
I painted this watercolor portrait of a little owl mostly with a dry brush so that the texture of the watercolor paper combined with the watercolor paint captures the fluffy plumage of the owl.

A barred jungle owlet gets a very different perspective on the world! 🦉
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.

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 haven’t been easy to photograph because they’ve left the nest.
So rest easy, the owl family is doing well, but there probably won’t be any more updates.
If anything more gets posted, I’ll be sure to share! ☺️
As I was starting to walk home I heard this low pitched call, and after searching the trees for a while, I found this beautiful owl fighting with a damn squirrel at the top of this very tall tree lol
After it settled down on a nearby tree I managed to take a few more shots.

Hi everyone! I'm super excited to share that I now have Tarot of the Owls original paintings (a batch of major arcana and more to come!), signed prints of every card, and mini print-at-home/digital stickers available in my shop!
Also - currently all original art and print orders come with a free print from the sale section of my shop!
#DailyOwlUpdate - look at the little guy explore the back yard and bobbing his head!
He’s getting better at flying and is certainly adventurous but there’s still a level of awkwardness that’s just adorable. 🥰
Check the comments for the second half of the video!
