Thetis Gamberg heard a barred owl calling during daytime: who-cooks-for-you who cooks for you all.
Heard at 6am. I know they hang out in our trees. It quit calling before I could get the recorder on :(
They used to be very common in the area, but due to more housing developments and cutting down big trees we can only see them occationally. This picture was taken right in front of our bedroom here at Littlewood Garden.
