Nick manages to catch another amazing event. One of the most dangerous moments in a birds life is that point where they finally fledge from the nest and fly for the first time. In this video, Nick manages to catch our urban powerful owl fledging, a seriously rare event, even more so in an urban landscape.
Many of us at Deakin have followed these, and many other, powerful owls over many years, and none of us have captured fledging on video. Well done Nick, but we are seriously jealous.
