Over the last 6 weeks or so we have been very taken by a pair of tawny frogmouths that have been nesting in a tree outside our window.
Over the last week or so, we thought that the chicks must have hatched but we hadn't seen them yet.
I love this photo below-
I took it on Wednesday & only noticed the chick under the wing when I loaded the photo onto the computer on Thursday!
Since then there has been quite a bit of chick action- there are 2 of them & they've been quite active.
We love watching them.
We are feeling a bit like proud grand parents :)
A few tawny frogmouth facts:
::Tawny Frogmouth pairs stay together until one of the pair dies.
::They breed from August to December.
::They usually use the same nest each year.
::After mating, the female lays two or three eggs onto a lining of green leaves in the nest.
::Both male and female take turns sitting on the eggs to incubate them until they hatch about 25 days later.
:: Both parents help feed the chicks.
