Four Tawny Frogmouths sitting in a tree

Here is the little family. The babies are nearly all growed up now.

I thought I'd missed them and they had all flown the coop. There was no poo all over the footpath, the nest was gone and I felt a bit sad that I didn't get more shots.
But there they were again, all in a row.

Pity I couldn't move that branch. Looks the little one is giving me a death stare again.

OMG, Dad is too. Yep looking right at me and not moving.

Actually no, looking right through me and not moving. It started to get creepy.

I thought I'd better take a few more shots and then this -

They opened their eyes - like REALLY OPENED THEIR EYES........shhhiiiiiiiiiit!

Look at their faces in the earlier pics. Their entire faces are practically closed. Until something draws their attention obviously.

This pic didn't do the colour justice - they were GLOWING red.

I put the camera down and walked very very quickly back home.

Looks like Scorpio is doing the Kinder drop offs until it's safe again.

OMG! Those eyes are freaky!! I really don't want to see them in their true colour.
