Where have all the Boobooks gone?

It is mid October and this reminds me that I have not heard a Boobook in Canberra since before the bushfires of January 2003 (although I have found them in daytime roosts). Is this a shared experience? If so does anyone have a rationale for this? Clearly the species is still present in the ACT but it has become very inconspicuous.

Gang-Gang and Yellow-tailed Black-Cockatoos became more conspicuous for a couple of years post inferno but they also appear to have decreased in numbers during the last 12 months.
