what will be a habit... THE GREAT SYDNEY OWL HUNT!!!!!!

This is what we got...

1. White-throated Nightjar - Bobbin Head-heard from Sphinx trail area
2. Powerful Owl - Mitchell Park
3. Southern Boobook - North Rocks, Mitchell Park
5. Tawny Frogmouth - Mitchell Park
6. Echidna - Bobbin Head-Spinx carpark area
7. Sugar Glider - Bobbin head-near North Turramurra entry gates
8. Swamp Wallaby - (as above)
9. Common Brushtail - (as above)
10. Common Ringtail - Mitchell Park
11. microbats - various
12. Grey-headed Flying-fox - Spinx area
13. various frogs - Pitt Town Bottoms Rd., Mitchell Park
15. rabbit - do you care?
16. cat
17. dog

Dipped on Australian Owlet-nightjar strangely, as we visited three good
spots for it. Didn't see Barn Owl at Pitt Town Bottoms Rd., Pitt Town,
either. Sooty and Masked Owl... well... umm...
