Tony Russell records the presence of the rare Powerful Owl (Ninox strenua)
in Victoria's East Gippsland region.

In Victoria there are thought to be fewer than 500 breeding pairs of this
owl and any sightings of the species are of importance.  Powerful Owls are
apparently exitinct in South Australia and are vulnerable to extinction in

I encourage list members and others to forward sightings of birds (rare or
otherwise) to the Atlas of Victorian Wildlife (tel. 039 450 8600).  All
observations are potentially of value to the management of our avifauna.
