Hi Gil,

I'm quite familiar with the area in your post and have seen Grass Owl at the Noosa Plain site at Cooloolah. (I assume you are talking about the track that goes east from the Kin Kin 4WD track along the powerline) Over a decade ago I attended a Ground Parrot banding session and some of the volunteers flushed Grass Owl from there on several occasions. Over the past seventeen years I've spent quite a few hours spotlighting and have never seen Barn Owl there. My guess is that the bird you saw was probably Grass Owl (but this is only my opinion!)

Did you get chance to visit Bymien Creek rainforest area along the 4WD drive to Freshwater Creek? (short drive from Rainbow Beach)

Last year we had excellent views of Marbled Frogmouth after Colin Reid reported them on Birding-Aus, we've also had Lewin's Rail, Pittas and rainforest pigeons there.....a good spot.
