Papuan Frogmouth Photos

Podargus papuensis

A bird I would have never spotted in the wild without help.; On June 6th, 2019 we were taking a short river cruise by Port Douglas, Australia, when the boat captain casually poionted to these two. They were SO well hidden, partially hidden by foliage, in the shade in the mangroves on the river bank. The captain then maneuvered the boat for great views, and the first 3 photos below. The last 2 photos are of captive birds, at a place in Port Douglas.
