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.

this photo shows the tiny branches that are left on this tree that the Tawnys are calling home this week!
