Papuan Frogmouth

Papuan Frogmouth (Image ID 46911)
CommentOn a recent trip to North Qld, I was lucky enough to take a 2 hr birdwatching river cruise on the Daintree River. I had a wonderful guide who was very knowledgeable about the local birdlife. It was a dark overcast afternoon, with bouts of heavy rain, so I had to push my ISO high, as the other setting were already as low as I could go handheld in a boat.
The camouflage on these Papuan Frogmouths is so good, I would never have seen them if not pointed out to me. These birds have plumage that allows them to blend in with their environment.
