Kambah is a very large suburb in Canberra, possibly twice as large as most other suburbs.  Charles, can you provide more information on which part of Kambah this sighting occurred?

Powerful Owls have been heard calling near Cuumbeun Nature Reserve (top of the Queanbeyan escarpment) for the past several weeks.  Last evening I and a couple of other local observers heard a female calling between 0615 and about 0625, presumably  before she set off to harass the local possums and gliders.

My daughter in Kambah reported seeing at 11 pm last night two owls that seemed to be intent on making a currawong their next meal –‘ they were huge birds with wingspans of almost 2 m & had heads unlike other owls she had seen & took no notice of her when she went to look’ was her description - - she then went to the net & came up with the Powerful Owl that best fitted her description – is this possible?
