Tawny Frogmouth

This post is jumping in between the scheduled posts, so you can delight in our new neighbours in Broome. These chicks and their mother are camped in the small tree beside our power outlet. They have obviously been around for some months and apparently like the night lights in the caravan park, where they have a good supply of insects to eat. Our caravanning neighbour heard their soft calls and thought it was an electrical fault in the van. He checked the van, and the circuit breakers, and the powerbox …. nothing. Then he leant against the bush next to the powerbox, and the bush made the noise! “It scared the crap out of me!” he explained.

They do look exactly like the tree bark, don't they? And apparently they sound like an electrical fault!!!
