We have a pair of Tawny Frogmouths at our place. Observing them over the last 3 years they have raised 1 young each year of those 3 years. I'm not sure if a 2 month incubation period is too long, but this year, our hen started sitting on the 11th of September and the chick let the nest on the 9th of November. We were surprised that the nest survived the strong winds during this time, as it was the typical hap-hazard tawny nest.
