As I need to keep practicing with my camera setup I drove down to an old haunt for a few hours to see what was around….best pics of the day were of a Tawny Frogmouth family that a birding mentor (Steve “the bird man” MacDonald) pointed out to me as we met up on the Red Gum trail. The two smaller birds on the right are still quite young and the parents are still watching over them. The other parent was on a branch just to the left. The young birds watched what I was up to as I moved around trying to get a clear shot.
