    Another tourist spotted this Tawny Frogmouth in the Botanic Garden in Sydney, just as I was checking out the Pied Currawongs in a tree just a few feet away. I saw the commotion (several people moving closer to a shrubby tree with cameras drawn) and went over to see what they'd found. The...

    Wonder of wonders! Looked out of the kitchen window this morning and saw a Tawny sitting on our Euodia tree. Went out- side and there were two others just above it. In another minute or so the fourth bird flew in. That is the whole family of Tawnys that bred this season. It was so nice to see...

    I don't understand why most of the birds I photographed seem quite plump, especially if you could recall another photo of very slim Frogmouth taken lately by Tcollins in Darwin. It was a lucky find as I was birding with visiting BirdForum member Dave B.

    Juvenile Tawny Frogmouth

    This youngster's sibling had just been taken by a Lace Monitor, which was dragging its victim up the side of a nearby tree. I took the photo just before relocating this bird from the middle of a dirt road into some nearby bush. The parent Tawny Frogmouths sat impassively nearby throughout the...
