A beautiful Owl

Today we got a visit from this masked owl. He is a great bird with soft feathers. Again, the villagers threw rocks at it in the trees until they damaged one of the wings and then chased it down.
I think this bread is called an Australia masked owl. Because of the colors of his feathers. Or maybe a Tasmania masked owl.
 His condition was in bad shape. Besides the injured wing, toxins were already in his blood stream which caused his talons to be paralyzed. I tried in vain to let him fly away, but he just flew about 20 yards then flopped back down to earth.
I don't expect him to last the night. So I just placed him in a secure place where he can pass in peace.

  1. A beautiful bird! Too bad he's not going to make it. Why are the villagers so vicious? Had they killed the owl would they have done anything with it? Eaten it?

  2. Such a beautiful bird. So sad that it couldn't make it.

  3. What a beautiful bird this is indeed! Quite a while since my last sighting.
    The only two types of barn owls in Zambia are - as far as I remember of course - the Barn Owl (Tyto alba) and the African Grass-Owl (Tyto capensis). I'm quite sure this is the first one. We have it here in Europe too.

    I wonder too what the locals would have done with the poor animal.

  7. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought you have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.

  18. There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
