STEVE MORVELL

Powerful owls are uncommon apex predators playing a crucial role in maintaining a balanced ecosystem. We are fortunate that they live in the Grampians National Park where I also live.
Powerful owls are easy to disturb when they nest so we maintain strict secrecy as to their exact location.

Once the owlets are old enough to accompany the parents away from the nest, finding enough food is difficult so they hunt just about anything including possums and cockatoos.
This charcoal engraving depicts the elder of two chicks as he took in the outside world from his ancient gum tree home.
