A Serious Business by byronbackyard

Tawny Frogmouths have a regular breeding season, but birds in more arid areas may breed in response to heavy rains. Both sexes incubate the eggs. The male sits during the day, but both sexes share sitting at night. The nest is a loose platform of sticks, which is usually placed on a horizontal forked tree branch. Normally only one brood is raised in a season, but birds from the south may have two.

Many thanks for checking out my photos, please feel free to give feedback! My wanderings in nature and observations of birds, particularly raptors, is what gives me great joy and constantly reminds me of the beauty and strength of life. My favourites are raptors, I love their freedom, grace, ruthlessness, pride, adaptability and flexibility and I learn much about parenting, protection and blind faith from them.

    great spotting and wonderful pic….i am surprised at how exposed the nest is.

  • Many thanks Lisa, it’s actually more protected than you would think. It’s in huge tree in a front yard so quite private and lots of branches around it. Plus they are so good at camouflage, most people could be looking right at them and not see them!
