The Powerful Owl Ninox strenua is now regularly reported in the Sydney area, New South Wales, though there were few records before the 1970s. Questions have arisen as to whether the population has grown in number or whether the species was previously overlooked. Historical records of the Owl for the Sydney area and changes in its local abundance are considered. Evidence for an increased population in parts of Sydney is given.
