Tawny-frogmouth Pair 10/06/12
A few days ago miss 8 was delighted to discover that her "flower garden tree" had two Tawny-Frogmouths living in it. This was rather funny, as the tree mentioned is hardly anything of a tree at all. Previously this was a small Ironbark tree in which we had planted a flower and fairy garden surrounding it for miss 8 to enjoy the beautiful flowers. Earlier in the yea,r in strong winds the tree completely snapped off, leaving a few tiny scraggly branches and the tree looking a bit ugly I must stay. It just goes to show you that a tree of any size and in any condition can be a home to wildlife! The tawnys remain perched in the same place, with no protection from the wind or cold, but in a convenient place for finding frogs close to the house at night we imagine! J.G.
