A powerful owl, Australia's largest owl, waits on its perch for feeding time at Sydney's Taronga Zoo December 6, 2005. The young owl was brought to the zoo's wildlife clinic after it was found on the side of a road with some feather damage. The owl is slowly starting to heal after receiving daily antibiotics that are hidden in its food. Normally found in old-growth forests, these owls are occasionally found in urban areas due to the increased loss of habitat.
