The common Australian barn owl, Tyto alba, is pretty much everywhere in the country that rodents are, and that is pretty much everywhere. Slater's describes that if these stunning birds are flushed from their hollow in the day time they are immediately mobbed by other birds. It would appear that is what happened with this guy, resulting in him being brought to Kanyana. However, his injuries are negligable, his biggest risk is in succesful relocation to a suitable spot. A nest box in farm feed factory perhaps.
