Tawny Frogmouth family

I've always wanted to post these Tawny frogmouth pictures. They were taken at the end of our street one wet morning in November 2008. It's been a slow birding week so here they are:

"OK kids, just make like a branch. Watch Dad!"
Tawny frogmouth (Podargus strigoides), Blackburn, 22/11/2008
"What the...? What are you doing!? Kids - you can't take them anywhere"
"Maybe that guy didn't notice"
"Oh OK, I give up!"


  1. Ooooo WOW!
    They are gorgeous!
    I love them!
    And your sense of humour is just perfect for the circumstances!
    Had I been there, I would have been glued to the road! LOL!
    Cheers Pete! :)
