No rustling leaves, human, camera flashlights, morning nor afternoon traffic could wake this pair of snoozing frogmouths. The owls, a male and a female were in our garden since this morning.
I took some morning and afternoon shots of the two birds and only for a few seconds this morning did their eyelids open. The female was more interested in me than the male. No doubt the pair have had a busy night last night and another ahead. The Tawny frogmouth as they are called, have an amazing way to camouflage themselves during the day. The owls inhabit open forests and woodlands of eucalypts and acacias throughout Australia and they live in pairs.
The Tawny frogmouth owls frequent our garden especially in winter.
