This little owl was the reason for a great commotion in our garden today - two tui were sounding the alarm over something I couldn't see from the veranda, so I followed their scrawking and found the owl, perched in a plum tree, looking slightly ruffled by the fuss the tui were making. It's still there, looking nonplussed, blinking at me. I'll check on it later. Our investigations reveal that it's a morepork, ruru, and most likely a young one, from what we can see, comparing these photos with those online.
