Not all roadkills are found where they were killed. I believe a Pheasant
Coucal once turned up in Kalgoorlie - best explanation, it flew into a
long-distance truck, got caught in bull-bar or radiator, and when found
several thousand miles later was dumped in gutter.
   My own example was a Red-capped Robin, fine male but rather knocked
about, found in Greville St, Prahran just across road from Andrew Isles
bookshop 2 or 3 years ago! There was quite a lot of hay or straw chucked
on the road too. 
   I hope you forwarded your Boobook to museum or wildlife authorities? 
Never move without a few plastic bags! and if need be, to quote Ken
Simpson, adopt new olfactory standards!
    Best wishes, Anthea Fleming in Melbourne.
