These photos of a tawny frogmouth, also near the banks of the Yarra where I live, were taken two nights ago.

Beautiful birds! At Flying High Bird Habitat, which is a tourist attraction at Apple Tree Creek just north of here, they have a resident tawny frogmouth who was injured and can't fly. So he sits in the office on a log, completely camouflaged. If you don't know he's there, you can walk quite close without noticing him.

Yes, great camouflage seems to be the feature of this bird.
