Some neighbours

I missed posting yesterday.  the internet was very slow and uploading was a problem.
The other day, we had a couple of visitors in our garden and I thought you might like to meet them.
Here is the adult.  Not sure if it is male or female, but what it is is a tawny Frogmouth.  they are nocturnal birds that are related to owls, as you can probably tell by the eyes.
This very scruffy, fluffy, and surprised one is a young one.  I think he/she is very cute!
Later on, as the dusk came on, they had a cuddle.
It was a lovely visit with some rare visitors, so I thought I would have a bit of a sketch and this is what i came up with.

Happy Creating!


  1. what lovely visitors, maybe they will make your garden their home and you will be able to see the youngster growing up, very good sketch too

  2. Wow, when I saw the first photo, I thought it WAS an owl. Then you told what it was, and I was shocked. On closer inspection, I saw a definite difference in the ears. But that sketch is what put it all in perspective. Lovely art and a great post. At least I can say I learned something new today!
