Three Tawny Baby Fledglings

06th November 2015

Three Tawny Frogmouth Baby Fledglings at Jarowair

A couple of nights ago, just hours before a large rain storm, Brendon noticed that the Tawny Frogmouth babies had left the nest and moved to a nearby Ironbark tree with the parents.  We were quite worried about how they would go in the storm, and Brendon went to check on them after the rain finished and they were all okay.  Yesterday I went to take some photos and discovered, not two but three babies!  All this time we thought there were two, just like last year, but there had been one other hiding in that scrappy nest the whole time! 

It is interesting to note that they have relocated the babies to the very same tree that they used last year to relocate the fledgling pair that they raised.  Such cute little bundles they are.  I love this photo below showing the whole family, two parents and three bubs - they look so proud.
