. . . And then there were 20

You may remember I posted pictures of 3 orphaned Tawny Frogmouths a while back, well they have now become 20!

These are the latest two and one is just a little dot.

















Here they are snuggle up with the big kids in the flight aviary



These birds are nocturnal and are fed at dusk, before we go to bed and early morning. I tried to get all 20 of them on the one branch, but they could see daddy with breakfast and wouldn't stay put. Another month and they most will be released back into the wild.

  3. They are indeed strange looking birds. I love their huge noturnal eyes. A bit like possum eyes aren't they? It is just so good that you are fostering them until they are ready to go back to the wild.

  4. Awesome! They look so unusual to me, although the eyes do have a resemblance to owls.
