The Kid Should See This

The tawny frogmouth at the Brookfield Zoo

What is a tawny frogmouth? The Brookfield Zoo in Chicago welcomed two tawny frogmouth chicks in early July, 2012.

For reasons unknown, the parents, Eunice, who is on loan from Riverbanks Zoo in South Carolina, and Gullet, who is from Sea World Orlando, abandoned the nest about halfway during the incubation period. To give the unborn chicks a chance at life, staff pulled the eggs and placed them in an incubator. Once they hatched, they received round-the-clock care. Now at 3 1/2 weeks old, they have grown, are eating well, and appear to have a bright future ahead of them. 

Tawny Frogmouths are native to Australia, Tasmania and southern New Guinea. They are not owls, but they do often pretend to be tree branches
