Pied Butcherbird family

10,000 Birds

We have been observing the Tawny Frogmouth family again during the week at the same park in Broome. The juvenile birds are growing fast and less interested in people in the park. There are also two Pied Butcherbird families in the park and they are also growing fast. The header photo is of an adult Pied Butcherbird.

A Tawny Frogmouth family

10,000 Birds

I won’t apologise for doing another post about Tawny Frogmouths , because they are just such beautiful birds! You will notice that it is a year ago that I wrote about the family of Tawny Frogmouths at Cygnet park in Broome. Once again there is a family there, but we don’t know if it is the same pair.

I tried to photograph one of the juvenile birds, which was quite large, but was also behind some long grass seeds.

The Birds That Audubon Missed: A Book Review

10,000 Birds

The Birds That Audubon Missed: Discovery and Desire in the American Wilderness is about birds and taxonomy, history and art, the birding god we have revered and torn down, the ornithological originals we’ve ignored or simply don’t know. It’s not always a straight line to the answer.

Tawny Frogmouth family at Cygnet Park-Broome

I have been watching the birds feeding on the nectar of the native trees and dropping in for water. There has been a family of Tawny Frogmouths at our local supermarket car-park in other years. From the photo below you can maybe now see the birds in the header photo. Undoubtedly it has young nearby. Tawny Frogmouths.
