Must say, I've never seen an owl in the wild here in Australia. Occasionally a Tawny Frogmouth, but never any owls.
I'm sharing the envy, but also enjoying the owl posts from contributors here. So much variety!

Indeed great owls Hezu and JS5!

Today, thanks to election day (for the third time in the past 11 months... ) and cancellation of a conference I was organizing (the fear of coronavirus... ), I had time to go out and try once again to capture the Sinai rosefinch.

At first I could only find the common White-crowned wheatear (in sunrise light):

White-crowned wheatear #1

Sony ILCE-7RM4 + Sony FE 200600mm F5.66.3 G OSS (SEL200600G) | 600.0 mm | f/6.3 | 1/1600 sec | ISO 320

White-crowned wheatear #2

Sony ILCE-7RM4 + Sony FE 200600mm F5.66.3 G OSS (SEL200600G) | 600.0 mm | f/6.3 | 1/1600 sec | ISO 320

White-crowned wheatear #3

Sony ILCE-7RM4 + Sony FE 200600mm F5.66.3 G OSS (SEL200600G) | 600.0 mm | f/6.3 | 1/1250 sec | ISO 320

And then I saw the Sinai rosefinch, but it was far. I waited and eventually it came over near me! But... it was only the female, which is not as good looking and impressive as the male... I'll have to keep trying...

Sinai rosefinch (female)

Sony ILCE-7RM4 + Sony FE 200600mm F5.66.3 G OSS (SEL200600G) | 600.0 mm | f/6.3 | 1/1600 sec | ISO 320
