Hi Eric,

I just viewed the video clip of the Frogmouths at Gibraltar Range/Washpool National Parks. I am very familiar with these parks and I have only ever recorded Tawny Frogmouths there. I have recorded some very reddish-chestnut female Tawnies there which can be confusing. The main distinguishing characters between the two species (the tail length, barring on the facial plumes and wings etc.) are not clear in the clip but the solid build also supports Tawny.

My opinion is that they are Tawny Frogmouths. If they were Marbled Frogmouths it would constitute a range extension.
