John Tongue writes: We're currently in NSW on holiday. Seeing good numbers of birds, considering most of our birding is being done from the car, while travelling between friends and relatives. We were VERY excited, though, after many years of searching, to be able to finally tick Powerful Owl, (a very little photograph is attached). We were steered in the right direction by a contact from the birding-aus e-mail list to a likely roost in Chatswood, Nth Sydney. We called in straight off the (doomed) Sydney ferry, and stumbled on it first up! It really is exciting to add a bird that you've been searching for, for some time.
