Powerful Owls visit introduced chainsaw hollow

Did you know that Powerful Owls are named so because of their incredible size and strength. They can fly at up to 60 km/h and have been known to attack prey up to 3 times their own weight! This near threatened species typically nest in very large tree hollows and will use the same site for several years.

This pair of Powerful Owls have been captured on our hidden camera. You can clearly see the eye shine of the partner in the RHS distance!

They appear to be checking out one of Treetec’s introduced chainsaw hollows! Hopefully a site that might suit them for nesting as a pair can breed for life and produce several chicks with a good nesting hollow.

Hopefully there will be more to come on this story…
