There are many creatures in nature who are masters of camouflage and one of these is the Tawny Frogmouth. They are nocturnal birds so during the day they are seen perched on tree branches, usually down low, camouflaged as part of the tree.
These photos show our hand-reared, resident Tawny Frogmouths, Baby and Hoot with their two surviving fledglings on the edge of our busy main driveway. This dead tree they picked was quite low, making it easy to take a couple of photos with my iPad.
The tawny at the bottom is Baby with Hoot just above him on the right. The close-up photo actually has three tawnies in the picture; the top-half of Hoot at the centre-bottom.
