Tawny Frog Mouth owls in the tree in front of my aunt’s house at Stuarts Point, NSW, Australia. They stay for a few months during Summer, and have increased over the last few years from 2 to 4, in number.

About EllaDee's daleleelife101.blog

After a decade of living in tiny apartments in the inner-city of Sydney, Australia with my husband referred to in my posts as the Gorgeous One (G.O.) while I worked in corporate-legal and the G.O. in civil earthworks we relocated 500 kilometres north in December 2015 to our home in the Nambucca Valley to follow our dream of living simply and creatively. We travelled around Australia in 2016. Now we work on our 1930’s house, have a vegetable garden and a dog plus share a flock of backyard chickens with our neighbour. These days I’m a Horticulture student, something I dreamed of doing for many years. I write about day-to-day life, past & present, people & places, and take snapshots with my smart phone.

  1. Aren’t owls something? Some years ago, a screech owl took up residence in the woods behind my parents’ home. Late at night I could hear it call as it hunted and, occasionally, I’d find the remains of some animal or bird it had eaten. Just like us at the family dinner table, it had a favorite perch on which to dine. I never did see it, though. Great that you’ve not only seen these guys but know that they’ve doubled in numbers. How cool is that?

    • It is something special to hear or see an owl or even know they live nearby 🙂 We love our wildlife, whether city or country and get a kick from knowing we share the environment.

    • Much excitement for us, as we have a tawny frog mouth too 🙂 A while ago, I said I thought I heard an owl but we also have a lot of huge pigeons and “whoo” and “coo” can sound similar. But, the G.O. and the neighbours had a visit from the owl last night while sitting up the back, and I heard it today – definitely “whoo”, so I’m hoping to see it tonight 🙂

  2. You are so lucky to be able to photograph such beautiful birds.
    It’s not very often I see them here, though they’re definitely around as I can hear them.

    • I feel very privileged 🙂 It appears now we also have a tawny frog mouth owl at home at Taylors Arm. Our neighbour heard it, and then the G.O. and neighbours saw it last night. I heard it today, in the the trees at the back. I’ll be waiting, hoping, tonight 🙂
