Tawny Frogmouth Family Nest
On Thursday the Tawny Frogmouth nest was still being occupied by a parent and chick observing everything going on around them. Then on Friday they had finally abandoned their nest and were sitting on a different branch on the opposite side of the tree blending in with the silhouettes of the leaves.
It has been a pleasure to watch this little family over the past couple of months at Whites Hill Reserve. They also nested in the same area last year too. But with the recent land clearing/development going on right next to their tree, I will be very surprised if they return to this spot again next year.
