Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small brownish owl with dark ‘glasses’ surrounding eyes. Fairly common in a wide variety of habitats in Tasmania and New Zealand. Similar to Southern Boobook, and range overlaps in southern Victoria during the winter; Morepork is smaller, darker, and has more extensive spotting and a different voice. Call is a familiar ‘boo-book’ with the second note lower pitched than the first, higher-pitched and smoother than Southern Boobook.
