Tawny Frogmouth's Nesting Journey 2015

11th October 2015

It has taken some time for us to find where the Tawny Frogmouth's were nesting at Jarowair this year. None of the usual nesting trees were chosen this season.  Brendon's keen eye spotted them last night with the torch, in an ironbark tree again, on the edge of the dry creek bank.  He thinks he saw at least two chicks in the nest at night.  
Today I went down to take some photos to document their journey, as we did last year (see last year's cute photos here).  This afternoon, I couldn't make out any of the chicks on the wiry nest under the parent, but we will keep a good eye on them and hopefully will get a few photos of the little nestlings to share. Keep your fingers crossed for another successful breeding season.  We will keep you posted!
