26-09-2020 Went out to get a few shots as we knew it was going to be a better day.
After a little driving we stopped to have some lunch and the lady I was with looked over the top of my head and there this way.
No need to to wonder from here as lunch was finished right then.

These were are one time called the Twany Frogmouth Owl but the owl part was dropped.
This was due to science and it not being an owl.

These are at time so hard to see as they blend in so well to its surroundings.
So when you see them you take the shots.

I have recently seen a few more shot like my shot but some are far more hidden in their feather colours and even in the photo it's still hard to find.
They have had a lot of years to get this right and I think they have got that part worked out.
