Tawny Frogmouth study - 2

These birds are incredibly difficult to find.

They are nocturnal birds and roost all day relying on their cryptic plumage and motionless posture for defence from predators. Here a pair roost inconspicuously, the female who is slightly smaller and has a touch of red/brown in her feathers, sits nearer to the main stem of the tree.
