Hi Judith,

At night, when you hear it, you could try a little bit of call-playback. Not 
too much - you don't want to upset the bird in anyway - just enough to see if 
it comes in. Otherwise, often the best way to see Australian Owlet-nightjar is 
to find their daytime roosting tree and hollow. Scratch the base of any tree 
that has small hollows. If present, the bird may flush, thinking the noise is 
an intruder such as a Goanna. Interesting to know where you are you, urban or
