Nice additions Graham and Gus.

Another night hunt, found something very interesting (to me...)
Tawny frogmouth found by the sound of it bashing it's catch against a branch, butcher bird style. It was bashing it for 5 minutes before swallowing.
Not until viewing on PC did I realize the catch was a bag moth caterpillar and that the "house" withstood the bashing.

Bag moth caterpillar for anyone not aware what they are:

Thanks Mr 80, to me Crested Pigeons always look startled! They look like they are a permanent state of shock! Great light in these shots.

Alberts Lyrebird seen in the Lamington National Park last week. Shot at ISO 12,800 due to dim light in the rain forest.

Cheers

Looks more like a Whistler or similar to me, could be the angle but it looks to robust to be a robin. Maybe. Don't have a my book with me.
