Birth notice

November 3, 2013


Self-appointed and proud grandparents Trudie and Len are pleased to announce the arrival of one (maybe two) Podargus strigoides, otherwise known as Tawny Frogmouths. A recent post (click HERE to view) featured the frogmouth nest in a tree outside Trudie and Len’s bedroom window. Mother and father are doing well. So far they have been observed to swap sitting duties at dusk.







The two photographs (click to enlarge) show a parent sitting on amorphous balls of fluff. You can just make out an eye of a chick in one image (above) and a beak in the other (right). Stay tuned for more photos in the near future when the chicks grow into something more than animated cotton balls.
