Many thanks for the posting. For interest Frogmouths are not owls. They are in a different family. One difference is that unlike Owls they do not hunt with their feet. Chris

Chris - thank you, now I understand why it is not an owl. There seems to be a lot of nocturnal bird activity over the last few months up on Red Hill (Hughes side).
