Hi Peter,

I was using the term 'original' rather loosely but although my 1946 edition
of Cayley's 'What bird is that?' and my 1912 edition of 'An Australian bird
book' by Leach both refer to the species as 'Tawny Frogmouth' both give an
alternate common name of "Tawny-shouldered Frogmouth'.  I read somewhere
that 'Tawny Frogmouth' was the shortened version of 'Tawny-shouldered
Frogmouth' and this makes a lot of sense.
