The Powerful Owl is the largest owl in Australasia. It is native to eastern and southeastern Australia and found mainly on the coastal side of the Great Dividing Range. The owls have large yellow eyes set into a dark grey and brown facial mask. Their legs are feathered and they have enormous yellow to orange feet with very sharp talons.
Their low, deep double hoot can be heard at any time of the year, but it is more frequent during the breeding season in autumn.
