We have spent several evenings over the last few weekends looking for Grass 
Owls near the Brisbane Airport without success.

We've spent time in the grasslands around the lagoons at the end of Toombul Rd, 
and also in the grass along Nudgee Rd between the Boat Ramp and Nudgee Golf 
Course, just on dusk.

The closest we've come to success was nearly stepping on a Swamp Harrier 

If anyone out there has any helpful suggestions which could help us get a look 
at some Grass Owls, that would be much appreciated.  Hopefully there is an art 
to finding them that someone can share, or maybe just perseverance?

PS - after an incident with a carpet snake at Samsonvale Cemetary on Saturday 
morning looking for (button-)quail (only managed to find Brown Quail), long 
grass stomping is rapidly losing its appeal!
