No Boobooks calling in middle Macquarie this year. Very quiet  the last few years.

Some years ago successful nesting with two chicks raised in Eucalyptus blakelyi on our nature strip . Following attempts foiled  by Cockatoos and Indian Mynas.

[canberrabirds] 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.
