Hi Janet,
Well what surprises me about your message is: I wonder how a Tawny Frogmouth with what I would have thought to be weak feet, would be able to perch on something as thin as an aerial. I have never seen one perched on a thin branch, only on main branches. Did they look comfortable? From what you saw, my guess is they could equally likely be a pair, parent and offspring, just friends keeping in touch or rivals on a territorial boundary. Do Tawny Frogmouths have much vocabulary beyond "oom"?
