Hi birders,

I was telling my wife this morning about all these bloopers and she reminded me about an incident in 1987 when we were camping at Lake Hattah in Victoria.

We were very annoyed trying to get to sleep one night when we heard a low "ooom-ooom-ooom" sound coming from nearby. We thought that some inconsiderate campers had a power generator going.

Next morning we discovered the source of the noise - a Tawny Frogmouth perched on a branch above our tent.
