When I was a youngster, I used to imagine being able to venture into the dense schlerophyll eucalyptus forests of eastern Australia with the chance to see the majestic, slightly terrifying but aptly named Powerful Owl. 

This bird is the largest of the Australian owls, and has adapted to living in the suburbs and cities, as agriculture, forestry, bushfires and urban sprawl alter or eliminate the preferred habitat of this possum hunter.

Bronwyn Isaac has studied some of the Powerful Owls that have moved into the suburbs of Melbourne, and have become successfully established.  Hear about her work, and learn a lot about the Powerful Owl.
