For years we have had a Tawny Frogmouth Owl that frequents our garden at night. They are quite comical to watch. As you approach them they pretend to be a branch and stretch their neck out on an angle as stay completely still.
This morning I noticed a fluffy looking bird sitting on top of the arbour in the backyard. First thoughts were it's a white owl and then J and I thought it may be a young Kookaburra. We went out to take a look and sitting all fluffed up was a baby Tawny Frogmouth. It must have fallen from it's nest last night during the storm. It only had a few feathers on it's tail and wings and lots of down feathers so it was quite young.
It was so cute pretending to be a branch just like it's Mum. We called the shelter for them to come and collect it. Thanks Damian. I hope you guys can get it to eat so it can be released back here when it's older.
