Hi all,
I had a great sighting of marbled frogmouth (race plumiferus) yesterday 
(Thursday 13th July) at Nightcap National Park, Protestors Falls section.
Nightcap National Park is in northern NSW, Australia.
I arrived at the picnic area at 4.20am and heard call of female around 4.30am 
quite some distance away. The pair (I assume) moved closer and I got great 
close-up views of one bird around 5.30am and one briefly flying above me. Both 
male and female heard calling at 5.30am. Both gobble and kooloo calls continued 
until 6.25am.

It has taken me a dozen or so attempts to see this bird over a decade including 
several unsuccessful trips to Conondale National Park in QLD and Terania Creek 
in Nightcap National Park, NSW (where I have heard the call before but never 

Poor photo is attached.
Please contact me off the forum if you want further specifics about the 
Regards,Charles HunterBronte, Sydney
