Barking Owls do occur in southeast Queensland but they have always been
rare, much more uncommon than Powerful Owls. I have recorded Barking Owls
from the Blackbutt Range and from near Gin Gin, and I know of records from
the Conondales and Cooloola.

Hi all,

My recent post about having a Powerful Owl in my backyard elicited a
response I was totally unprepared for.  Someone wrote to me privately to say
in nearby Kenmore Powerful Owls turn up semi-regularly, but there had also
been a pair of BARKING OWLS in Kenmore in 2004-05 for 6 months.  Did anyone
else know about this?  Was it ever reported?  Does anyone know of any
Barking Owls near Brisbane currently?  Everything I have read since
receiving the email suggests there are no populations of Barking Owls in
SEQ, and never have been.  Any information to the contrary would be
appreciated.  The closest place I know for the species is Goondiwindi.


ps. what is the closest to Brisbane people have seen Barking Owls in the
