For Sydneysiders or visitors to Sydney there is a very reliable and easy
Boobook Owl in the Cumberland State Forest, Castle Hill Road, West Pennant
Hills.  Go to the Visitors' Centre, look for a sign to the Sensory Trail,
walk down the track until you come to a hairpin bend with a information sign
marked Palm Valley. Kneel down and look under the palm frons ahead of you
and voila! a cute little Boobook.  The bird is much lower than you would
expect to see an owl.  As you walk around the track it becomes at eye level
Take a tripod and remote cable for your camera.  Flash will only make the
eyes bright red.

There are lots of other good birds in this park especially at this time of
