Today I received another unconfirmed report of a Powerful Owl near the
foreshore in SE Melbourne (this time Beaumaris).  I have a report from a
good observer in this general area of one in a September and other
scattered reports from June and August.  Last year the Bird Observer
reported one in nearby Mentone in February and there was a letter in the
Melbourne paper, The Age, of  one near Albert Park around July, 1995.

Do any of you have good records of this species around here: the reports
are frequent enough to suggest regular winter migration and even
breeding in the area?
