AT LAST! As you know I have been trying to catch a pic of the tawny frogmouth for ages! Was so excited to see this little beauty on a walk around Lake Joondalup. They are masters of camouflage, sitting in the paper-nark trees alongside the lake.. how about that tree bark! I discovered that the tawny frogmouth isn't an owl as I thought but actually from the podargus genus. Although they look a wee bit like owls to amateur-birders like moi there are many differences between the two if you read the link. The owl hunts by swooping down and picking up it's prey with its claws, the frogmounth uses its beak, check out those tufts of bristles atop its beak, making it an easy prey for feral cats as it lands on the ground to get its prey. They normally travel with a mate, I searched but couldn't spot it. Still, one is better than none right! Talk about an expressive face. You won't believe what it did when it thought I was getting too close, show you tomorrow. Happy Friday, take care and stay safe..
