Tadpolemouth update

After 3 weeks without a trace of the frogmouths (adult or young) I found the 2 young ones today. They were perched on a fence being harassed by a bunch of thornbills. (And a photographer!)

The next day (4 January 2009) I was bringing in the washing in the evening and heard a noise a bit like a bleating sheep (not unusual out here, but not usually from this direction). On looking in the direction of the sound I found all 4 frogmouths sitting in a wattle. Welcome back guys!

The photo of all 4 is rather naff, but is included to show the isolation of one of the youngsters.
