Yesterday Angus McIntyre reported three 'owl like birds' he had seen for several days. I checked them out at 11.20 today (16/8/05) and found two Tawny Frogmouths on a dead branch near the trunk 3-4 metres up a pale gum. The tree is on the east side of the bike path (on the east side of the creek, just near where some green plastic has been tacked along the bottom of a wire fence further back. It is the stretch of the bike path south of Ward Rd, not far from a construction site. The two birds I saw looked mature, but in very low res photos Angus took with his phone one of the three blobs seems to have a much shorter tail.
