    Did you find both of them in the photo? Amazing, aren't they.

    They look almost like the bark of the tree...great camouflage!

    And this is how the Tawny Frogmouths normally spends their days... almost invisible!

    Meet one of the Tawny Frogmouths that lives on our property. How can you not love that little face?
    They usually flatten themselves against the branches and you hardly know they are there. This was the first time I have seen one looking at me like this.

The photo (taken with my phone) simply does not capture the details...but it was so nice to be out there and see these splendid birds

    Great photos! Is the Blue one with a crest a BlueJay ? I'm sure you are going to enjoy watching them - hopefully they will nest where you can watch them.

    I think itís a honking big juvenile red tailed hawk! Itís got the creamy white chest from right under the yellow bill, and not huge talons, and an intricate brown and cream pattern on the back. Time and more sightings will tell.
    But if itís one of the hawks from down below my building, why are the crows and the blue birds screaming and triangulating only now? Why not before? What a glorious world full of research to do!

    This photo is from Wikipedia.
    Your original picture does look like a red tailed hawk-- we have many here in RI as well and I see them often on my property as I live in the woods. It also could be a Cooper's hawk which are more brown-- but you would would see horizontal stripes on the tail of the adult.

    Aren't they gorgeous?
    Photo from Wikipedia BTW.

    If they have their head up they would probably reach around my stomach.

    More info from the Audubon Society

    What size are these spoonbill, Douglas. I remember my surprise at how tiny flamingoes are when I saw them in the park in Kowloon
