Hanzab comments that the species shows fidelity to nest sites.  After having 1 bird around for a few days chasing Swift Moths, earlier this week a pair appeared in our Yellow Box very close to the nest site from last year.  With any luck this means we will have another breeding event this year.

While they were snuggled up close to each other for the latest visit, one was facing East and the other West.  Presumably this maximises the chances of nailing supper.

Three tawny frogmouths today on a horizontal branch in a dead tree between the bike path and Alexandrina Dr near the fenced boat/trailer parking area near the yacht club.  They're in the same tree where I saw two last July following postings from Marnix Zwankhuizen and Nick Payne.  To quote Marnix - The tree is on the northern side of Alexandrina Drive some 30 metres west of the public toilet block by the entry way to the yacht club.
