Feathered Friends

Every September a family of Tawney Frogmouth return to a tree right near our house. I'm hoping this nest has a baby in it and I can get some photos of it in a few weeks.
We have seen their young learning to fly and sometimes see them still as a statue on the ground. One youngster landed in our backyard one year but soon flew off when he saw my camera coming!
 I love these birds, they are so stern and grumpy looking, they are hilarious.

These birds are the reason I don't get a cat. I'd like the cat to get rid of the mice but don't want to risk these birds finding a new home. Their looks and sounds are so unusual and unique, they are gorgeous.
