Hi Paul,
            Re Tawny Frogmouths eating mice; one night a few weeks ago a
Tawny Frogmouth was sitting on the clothesline post in our backyard looking
at a pile of seed on the ground  at our ground-level bird feeder, and a
tawny cat (not ours) was also focussing on the birdseed. Mice feed on that
grain . There were no outside lights on in the area, and the assumption was
that both tawnys were stalking mice, which we control with some Ratsac
equivalent in the belief that any raptor eating rats and mice killed with
warfarin or other anticoagulant baits aren't susceptible.  ??.
            Is it true however that cats are susceptible to panadol and/or
aspirin baits?

            (We dont feed enough to the birds for them to become dependant)
