The Tawny Frogmouth (Podargus strigoides) is an Australian species of frogmouth, a type of bird found throughout the Australian mainland, Tasmania and southern New Guinea. The Tawny Frogmouth is often mistaken to be an owl. Many Australians refer to the Tawny Frogmouth by the colloquial names of "Mopoke" or "Morepork", which usually are common alternative names for the Southern Boobook. Frogmouths are not raptorial birds... look closely for this camouflaged wonder

Big Bird - I've always thought it a bit odd that the name of these eagles has the word bald in it. Oh sure, I get that the white head kinda make them look bald....but not really. Anyhow, it's not often one gets to be eye level with one of these beautiful birds. The image was taken from a high point and the eagle was perched on top of a tree down a hill from where I was. This image was captured in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada. It is copyright protected.
