Tawny Frogmouth on nest. Not a true owl, but a member of the Nightjar family of birds. A difficult one to spot as they blend in with the bark of the tree. Unfortunately, we found the body of a dead chick, on the ground below this nest. Hopefully, they have a second chick under this adult.

Bean, that is a wonderful image!  Only the 2nd time I've seen one of these!  Thanks!

The first time I see it. Very peculiar bird and probably easy to miss due to its natural camouflage. Good shot!

+1 Delicate framing and the ripples brings life to it. Very nice indeed!

I've never seen this bird, either. Thanks for posting it. I can see how it could easily be missed.

Thanks folks for the feedback. Browsing through this thread has certainly inspired me to try things and get a little better at my bird photography. A great quality of images has certainly been collected over the months :)

Tawny Frogmouth on nest.

Lovely shot, agree with others, very unusual bird, well done.

Beautiful shot, Click. I love everything about it. Sharp, nice colors, well composed, and great water ripples.

Beautifully rendered background totally works in this Image, makes the Subject jump out, well done Click.

I rarely post here, although I do look a lot, some really great Images in the thread by a lot of good photographers.

My general rule is if it doesn't have teeth and attitude i pass it by, but from time to time something grabs my attention.

Haven't a clue what this Bird is called, but the colour attracted me.
