Around Sydney, "Frogs and Reptiles of the Sydney Region" by Ken Griffiths -
is more convenient and much more portable than Cogger.  

On the subject of urban birds, I went for an early Saturday morning
run around Iron Cove.  Passing in front of the Callan Park Hospital,
I heard intense calling by Noisy Miners.  In Casurina's just in from
the harbourfront I found a Boobook being mobbed by 20+ Noisy Miners.
It looked large for a Boobook so I spent several minutes (without
binoculars and poor lighting) trying to turn it into a Barking Owl.
First time I've seen  a Boobook in inner Sydney.
