tawny

We came home from shopping to find three Tawny Frogmouths ensconced in a tree close to the house. One looked to be a baby. We hadn't seen any since last summer so were very pleased that they'd come back, or another family had moved in. But they couldn't have picked a worse time. It was New Years Eve, and neighbours who should know better decided to stage their own fireworks event. What a dumb thing to do in the bush. Horses were running into fences and hurting themselves and other livestock was spooked and attempting to escape as far away from the noise as possible. The poor Tawnys must have decided that this was just too noisy a place for their liking and they haven't been seen since. This is the baby:
