An enriched microsatellite library was constructed for the Powerful Owl (Aves; Strigiformes: Ninox strenua ) from which 14 polymorphic microsatellite markers were characterized. Forty individuals (32 unrelated and four pairs of siblings) were genotyped to determine the application of these markers for genetic profiling. The mean observed and expected heter- ozygosity for unrelated individuals was 0.53 and 0.59, respectively. We demonstrate that this suite of markers is sufficient to unequivocally identify individuals and will be bene- ficial in assessing the population genetics and reproductive ecology of this species.
