Rob Davis wrote about a Barn Owl in Fremantle.

Maybe 10 years ago in the middle of a very hot summer's day in suburban
Mosman Park (Perth) I saw a Barn Owl roosting in a street tree - and being
mobbed by the local Brown and Singing Honeyeaters.  Some years later I
flushed a Barn Owl from a palm-tree at Grove Farm.
Boobooks are quite common around the Perth metropolitan area (not
infrequently heard on summer nights) - it looks like Barn Owls are probably
reasonably prevalent (but less heard) as well.
