An alternative hypothesis to humans disturbing roosting Booboks is: that they are relocating from their winter quarters and are forced into using suboptimal daytime roosts and, hence, more readily discovered by the usual vigilantes.  They have been prominent in the inner north suburbs in the last 2 weeks.  On one occasion three were 3 birds calling within a small radius and I am certain that these are not resident in the area.
