Saw the McNaught comet last night – quite spectacular despite the clouds that were around.
Late last night I noticed a Tawny Frogmouth sitting on the line going to our house. I have never seen one of these in the suburbs (I haven’t really been looking) so it was a bit of a surprise. It was quite happy to sit there while I got a closer look and took some photos. Quite an unusual looking bird up close, the bristly feathers above the beak were clearly visible.
Kylie identified it as a Tawny Frogmouth (I initially thought it was an owl of some kind) and held the torch on it so I could focus the camera correctly.
Things that have been occupying my time of late:
- Taking bird photos with my newish Canon 350D (mainly at Pinnaroo Valley);
- Reading through a stash of old Mac magazines I picked up out of the Quokka;
- Watching cricket (in particular the Ashes) on TV;
- Reading Steve Wozniak’s autobiography. This was an excellent and highly motivational read.
Happy New Year everyone!
