Tawny Frogmouth in super nightshot I saw this guy in my backyard so i thought it try out my Camera's nightshot capabilities. First i put it on nightshot, then switch to super nightshot, which slows the framerate down but allows for the shot to be much brighter :) Ps. looks cool when it flies off!

Frogmouth.MOD From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search Frogmouths Tawny Frogmouth, at night Scientific classification Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Aves (unranked): Cypselomorphae Order: see text Family: Podargidae Genera Podargus Batrachostomus Rigidipenna The frogmouths are a group of nocturnal birds related to the nightjars. They are found from India across southern Asia to Australia. They are named for their large flattened hooked bills and huge frog-like gape, which they use to take insects. Their flight is weak. They rest horizontally on branches during the day, camouflaged by their cryptic plumage. Up to three white eggs are laid in the fork of a branch, and are incubated by the female at night and the male in the day. The three Podargus species are large frogmouths restricted to Australia and New Guinea, and have massive flat broad bills. They are known to take larger prey such as small vertebrates (frogs, mice, etc.), which are sometimes beaten against a stone before swallowing. The twelve Batrachostomus frogmouths are found in tropical Asia. They have smaller, more rounded bills and are predominantly insectivorous. Both Podargus and Batrachostomus have bristles around the base of the bill, and Batrachostomus has other, longer bristles which may exist to protect the eyes from insect prey. In April 2007, a new species of frogmouth was described from the Solomon Islands and placed in a newly established genus, Rigidipenna. Recent ...

Strange Indian Bird - the odd Goblin Frogmouth One of the strangest looking birds in the world. Filmed during 'Chasing the Monsoon' an expedition through South India. A frogmouth is a tropical nocturnal bird related to the nightjar. They're active at night, when they hunt insects using their large gaping mouths to scoop them up. It was during the night that we ventured into the Thattekad forest to try and find one of the smallest and most elusive of the frogmouths - the edemic Sri Lanka Frogmouth (Batrachostomus moniliger). The only way to find one is to follow their distinctive calls - a loud descending cackly and frog-like series of 'Klock-klock-klock-klock-klock' calls (often described as sounding like rattling pebbles) the females call in response with a low long shrill 'Krrshhhh'.
hand feeding tawny frogmouth At Fairfield RSPCA in the wildlife ward. This tawny needed to be hand fed. they are very calm birds. we didn't use a puppet as the bird only just came in and wasn't in too bad condition, so will be released back into the wild in the next day or two, therefore no need to worry about human exposure/imprinting. and yes, its perch isn't high enough, it was the first thing we noticed when we came in the morning. an easy mistake to make, im sure the person who did it just didn't think, we swapped its perch after feeding it and cleaning its cage out.
Sleepy Tawny Frogmouth I was videoing this cute bird at the National Zoo in Washington DC, USA, and it suddenly yawned!
Tawny Frogmouth (Anthony Lawrence) The magical beauty of this poem couldn't be fully conveyed by this video, but I just had to do it. Tawny Frogmouth by Anthony Lawrence Daylight gives me the white magic of a chameleon. I am the whiskered changling. My feathers can assume the guise of flaking bark, or the softwood swirls of a knot in the pine's black terrace. This morning my grey flight was smoke from a gutter fire. Now I am wearing the scribbly gum's difficult hieroglyphics on my wings... I drink the wind and meditate on camouflage, my nocturnal mantra, my litany to the whispering dark: "oom leaf oom shadow oom moon"

Freaky Frogmouths (raw) More birds! Tawny Frogmouths in the tree outside my kitchen window. Freaky, eh? They are nocturnal and sleep in the tree. Usually only one, but sometimes a pair. I've been sitting on this and more for a while. Got three videos in the editing, and had no time to finish any. But I had to post something. This is meant for part of a video I am making with one of Mattymusic's songs. He gave me permission long ago but I haven't finished it, and in the meantime he has launched his EP and made even more wonderful music:
Javan Frogmouth Chick being fed
Hand Raising Tawny Frog Mouth Chicks!! These are 3 Tawny Frog Mouth Chicks we had in care in 2007, the single chick in start of video was blown out of nest in strong winds as a fluffy white chick, and the other 2 were removed from power pole where they were being attacked by crows and other predators all chicks were fed a diet of a offal/beef mince with insectivore mix mixed into it, and a pinkie mouse a day....that increased as they grew, All 3 chicks were released back to their natural habitat and away from the city...we would have had about 12 in care over the 2007 period..ALL were released...so we seem to have big success with these beauty's....you will see some of the adult ones in my other videos!!

Tawny frogmouth lying on the ground, then flying away. Part 2 of 2 In part one we saw the tawny frogmouth lying on ground. Here, we continue the story, and thinking it might have heat exhaustion, try to provide it with some cooling water nearby. However, this causes more fright than relief, resulting in it flying to a nearby perch and assuming, at times, the camouflage position. It remained in that perch until nightfall, about six hours later, and was agitated for the first hour of that time. However, the new perch, unlike where it had come from, was in the shade, which must have helped.

Tawny Frogmouth The Tawny Frogmouth is often thought to be an owl, but is in fact related to nightjars. They hunt at night and spend the day roosting on a dead log or tree branch close to the tree trunk. Their camouflage is excellent — staying very still and upright, they look just like part of the branch.

Tawny frogmouth lying on the ground, then flying away. Part 1 of 2 We have a pair of tawny frogmouths that live in and around our garden in Cremorne (between two busy roads). They have various perches in the area, their breeding nest is located in a tree on the nature strip, and they regularly fly through our yard at night. We hear them calling out to each other from time to time, and we have seen three seasons of breeding - year one with four fledgings, year two with one, and this year with an unsuccessful effort, the nest being left and trashed in early November. Not sure whether that caused the egg to disappear, or was as a result of the egg failing, or being somehow victim to nature. Enough background. Last Saturday, 9th January 2010, one of the birds was perched in one of our tall palm trees. It was warm bordering on hot - about 32 C. Without warning, while I was having a late lunch just after 14:35, the bird dropped out of the tree, in controlled flight, and landed on the (quite hot) pavers. Wings spread, although not fully, head down and tail out. It stayed very still like that for around a minute, by which time we had quietly gathered the camera. It sensed us, so slowly stuck its head up, but still lying flat otherwise. They are very familiar with us, and although only a metre away, almost at our feet, didn't move. Concerned, we thought it might have overheated. See Part 2.
