    Hi all, I wasn't sure where to post this but I was hoping someone could help me, or maybe link me to a forum that could help?

    I found these birds in our banana tree this after noon and just want to know what they are as I have never seen them before.

    I'm in Australia, if that helps and the weather was quite warm today.

    Here's the link to the pictures of the birds: http://instagram.com/p/eonZSSCOb-/

    Thanks heaps!

    It looks somewhat like a tawny frogmouth?

    I googled Tawny Frogmouth and that's what it is! I've never seen or even heard of one before.
    Thanks!
