Rufous Owl

Australias second largest and rarest owl relies heavily on its incredible sight to navigate through the forest at night without hitting a single branch.It is a formidable predator,able to kill a wide range of prey~from insects on a leaf,birds roosting on a branch,mammals on the forest floor and even flying foxes in mid-flight.
