Barking Owls are very rare in Victoria, it is estimated that there are only 50 pairs left. I have wanted to see one of these beautiful birds for quite some time so to be able to watch TWO in broad daylight was a treat that will stay with me for a long time. Unfortunately I did not catch much activity or their calls in this footage as they really do sound like hoarse, woofing dogs and the call is quite comical, as well as very endearing!

The Tasmanian Native-hen is entirely confined to Tasmania, but unlike other Tasmanian endemic species, it does not occur on the main islands in Bass Strait (King and Flinders Islands). Although the islands support plenty of suitable open habitats, such as farmland, grasslands and lush wetlands, being flightless, native-hens have never been able to colonise these islands from the Tasmanian mainland. In fact, King and Flinders Islands are entirely free of native-hens, as the Black-tailed Native-hen, which is widespread on the Australian mainland, has never been recorded there either!

Watch as this Mud Dauber Wasp skilfully builds a nest and stashes five paralysed spiders inside. The wasps lay an egg inside each nest, which hatches into larvae and feeds on the spiders before pupating and emerging as an adult wasp.
