Tawny Frogmouth

After our latest wader count we were invited to visit a garden where a family of Tawny Frogmouth had been seen. Thank you to the owners of the property for allowing us to come into their garden and take photos of the Frogmouth family, Mum Dad and two young ones. Thanks also to Mick for taking us there.

I've heard of these, but of course have never seen one. This is a really great bird.

What a unique bird! Looks a bit like a cross between an owl and a nighthawk/whip-poor-will.

Nicely done!

Wow, what a wonderful experience, and how lucky are the owners to have this going on, mega jealous for sure
