Tawny frogmouth

On the Nightcliff Promenade today this Tawny Frogmouth’s camouflage was working well on a Casuarina Tree. It was only his/her distinctive call that gave the location away. In Western Arnhem Land the bird is known as Kuluyhkuluy, a name that echoes the call. Science calls the bird Podargus strigoides.
