When we came home from swimming lessons this morning, these three feathered visitors were sitting in the Jacaranda tree next to the washing line. We quietly admired them, while they looked at us as if we were some interesting exotic creature. We've seen them around before (and boy, that baby has grown!), and can hear them in the evenings hunting in the bush behind the house - but to see them this close up was quite special. We are so lucky, living here..
Oh, they are Tawny Frogmouths, by the way, and are a nocturnal bird (not an owl).
