Author's notes

We saw five frogmouths flying low in trees on the northern side of the golf course where there is a lot of clearing happening. The photo possibly shows a female on the left with an immature bird on the right, because of the short tail feathers. The female fed the immature bird while under observation. Because of the darkness, this was the only photo I could get of the group.
