CommentThis young Rufous Owl was a surprise find on an early morning walk near the Cairns foreshore. It was sitting quietly on the edge of some mangroves beside open grassland. It was not disturbed by us or by a couple of council workers who came by in a truck picking up garbage - they didn't even notice it. The feathers are a bit bedraggled after overnight rain.
