A pair of Tawny Frogmouths in Centennial Park in the eastern suburbs of
Sydney regularly nest in Radiata Pines. However they will not be nesting in
one of their favorite trees again, it is now lying flat on the ground as a
result of the recent storms. The other well-known pair in the same park
favour paperbarks but have nested recently in casuarinas in Lachlan Swamp.
This proved to be a fatal error in the recent storm, the nest was blown out
of the tree. It may have survived if they had chosen the sturdy paperbark.

Regards, Allan
