Masked Owl - Tyto novaehollandiae

This is the first photo of this bird on TN if I am not wrong. And as far as I know it is the largest Tyto owl in the world with up to 55cm size and 125cm wing span.

Hello Fatih,
Very nice photo of this Australian Masked Owl. Congratulations, you are the first on TN with this bird. Great to see this owl in its natural habitat. Beautiful colours and good sharpness. Excellent POV and eye contact.

Outstanding photo, composition and sharpness are excellent and congratulations on being the first to post a Tyto.
