Tawny Frogmouth Fledglings Fly 02/11/14

An update on the two Tawny Frogmouth Fledglings at Jarowair. Only days after my last post where we discovered not one, but two feathered babies in the nest (see here) we witnessed the two juveniles practicing flapping their wings at dusk and within a couple of days the whole family had moved on. It took us a few days to discover where they had moved to, and sensibly it was to a much cooler shaded spot overlooking our dry creek.  We have seen the two babies flying off at dusk following the parents from tree to tree and they are now venturing back up closer to the house also.  This has been a great result and wonderful to see that they have both survived despite the intense heat and drought and many predators.  J & B.
