Frogmouths do cute

The pair (possibly a pair, but I reckon they are the same ones) have turned up again in the same haunts as last year.  They adopted a new position very close to our gate where I took this snap.

Hi Martin
Very cute.
Are there three birds in the image?
On the left hand side of the image there seems to be another bird, but then again, their camouflage is so good that perhaps it is a tree lump.
Cheers

I was pretty sure there were just 2 but went back to the original image to check. In that it is possible to see clearly that the possible 3rd bird is a lump on the tree. However I can see your point. (When Stuart Rae put up some images at a recent COG Meeting and asked how many frogmouths in that he got non-zero answers to froggie-free images!).

Regards
