Thanks David and Malcolm (and the unnamed neighbour who lent me a ladder!) for the heads-up on these birds. I attach two pics, there are a couple more on my flickr page, currently about half way down the first page ...

On Geoffrey's theme -- I think this list is at its best when ... people share tips on the location of interesting birds to photograph!

Greetings. Malcolm Fyfe sends this kind invitation to
list members. He writes, quote

I have a pair of Tawny Frogmouths which have been
roosting (cuddling up, actually) during the day within
a stone's throw of our house for the past months. We
knew of one regular roost high in an old dead tree,
but have now discovered a second which is only 4-5m
above a pathway. It occurred to me that some of our
seriously enthusiastic photographers might like to get
the "opportunity of a lifetime".  If this can be
advertised I shall be happy to lead interested persons
to the site when the birds are present.
My telephone number is 6253 0772 and, as you probably
remember, I live in Cook.

Pls contact Malcolm directly, by phone, if you are
interested in seeing these little cuddle-pots and

Regards - David
