Frogmouth 2

Posted by
: Helen : (Helen is photographing in Melbourne,, Australia) on 27 November 2015 in Animal & Insect.

Episode two commenced when I went around to the back of the house to sweep up the leaves from the trees.

On the paving were distinctive droppings. I looked up and saw, not only my elusive TAWNY FROGMOUTH, but I saw something huddled up next to it!
Yes, you guessed it! A chick !

A Tawny Frogmouth and her chick always perch on a branch looking in opposite directions for safety. Here you see the chick's tail feathers to the left of its mother.

Here are some other recent Tawny Frogmouth photographs:

Canon EOS 5D Mark III 1/160 second F/4.0 ISO 100 200 mm

I will respond to your kind comments as soon as I can. Thanks for dropping by!
