Rufous Owl Ninox rufa
Rufous Owls are sometimes called "the Powerful Owls of the North" and that's what they are: Very powerful with large talons. I have seen both subspecies, the one in Far North Queensland (Cairns) and around Darwin.
After having seen one again on our recent (July, 2017) trip to Cairns, I have added a few shots to this album.
