I think you will find that PO is Powerful Owl not Pied Oystercatcher. (I do
agree with everyone though)

For what it¹s worth I used to see the Powerful Owl in the Royal Botanic
Gardens often roosting in the biggest tree(I suck at botany) right next to
the gates on Macquarie st (immediately south or uphill of the Conservatorium
of Music). I saw it 3 or 4 times a year or 2 ago while photographing
weddings there. Haven¹t seen them for 6 months though.
