The deadly stare of the Barking Owl (also known as Winking Owl (Ninox connivens)) , love the brilliant eyes these birds have! This species hunts at dusk and dawn, as it can see very well in the low light. Feeds on most small animals, including mice, rats, and small possums.
They have a very characteristic voice that can range from a barking dog noise to a shrill woman-like scream of great intensity. It is nearly impossible to tell the difference between a barking dog, and the owl.
