There is much myth and folklore about owls. Some are light-hearted like in the U.S.: if you hear an Owl-cry you must return the call, or else take off an item of clothing and put it on again inside-out! Boo Book Owls are found all round Australia, from forests to desert regions, but need hollows in trees to nest.
We can help these birds if we realise that, in the environment, dead trees are as valuable as living ones, and they should be left for homes for wildlife.
