The Tawny Frogmouth made a repeat visit again last night, flying in at 9:30 p.m. to again perch on the top of the hills hoist in my yard last night. This time it waited around to have his/her photo taken. The repeat would probably suggest it is living somewhere locally. Though I have not seen it other than these two times. (The earlier time referred to below, was something like 10 years ago). I don’t think it is at my local park but then again they are easy to miss and could well spend its time in someone’s yard that I don’t have access to.

At this time of year I would suspect that means there is a nest somewhere within 100m of your clothes line.

I had a Tawny Frogmouth sitting on the hills hoist in my yard last night about 8 p.m. I think only m second record for my GBS site.
