Author's notes

Parent bird feeding two baby birds. Babies initially on separate branches then one flew clumsily to join the other. The parent flew off three times and returned, I think with moths. Sorry, it was very dark and my camera is not very good. Silhouette of heads was more frogmouth than boobook shaped. Typical baby bird feeding noises and a soft hiccuping barking sound from babies. Did not hear any sound from parent.
