A friend recently said that she hasn't had the chance to spot a Tawny Frogmouth in the wild yet. It's not easy to see them and since I came to Tasmania I haven't seen even one. But I can count more than a dozen times when I have come across those 'dead branches' in Sydney and Melbourne. The photos below were taken with my old FinePix S5500 in Sydney and Melbourne.

  1. Thanks for posting some more pics Nickolay :D These are awesome, especially that pair of them!

  2. I wish the image quality on these was better. but my camera at the time had its limitations, especially the softness at the end of its telephoto range.

    I could never figure out whether 'the pair' was a couple or a parent and a kid. The Tawny at the back looks a bit smaller, doesn't it?

    Good luck with your Tawny Frogmouth spotting, Resey! and best regards!
