Boobook refers to another Ninox species, not Ninox Strenua.

Sibley's Bird Behaviour book describes this as a territorial display. Nice shot Mike.

One of my favorites
Most bird photo critics will tell you when the head is turned away from the camera, it is not a good photo. I prefer this photo to the companion which is shot 'properly' from the side. I can't really explain it.

Great shot! This is called the 'gargle' display.
