Dear All I'm keen to see our form of Grass Owl - I suspect it's not technically 
a lifer for me - (I've seen 'Grass owls' in southern China and capensis in 
Zimbabwe) but none the less I'd really like to see them. I struggling around 
Brisbane - i've tried around the airport a few times and Cooloola twice 
recently. Has anyone seen them at these locations recently? On a national basis 
(I travel quite a bit for work) does anyone currently have suggestions of a 
good / reliable area? Also I was plodding around last night as it got dark 
(lots of ground parrots calling) and for a couple of hours after dark at 
Cooloola and could not help but notice all the Cane Toads - I saw perhaps 20 as 
I walked around (the area has had plenty of rain in the last week) - I was 
wondering if grass owls go for amphiabians and if so if they've been affected 
by cane toads? I don't have a copy of HANZAB - perhaps someone could let me 
know? Owls of the world - suggests mammals - mainly rodents so I hope they're
