Tawny Frogmouth Ornament

Outer Island

Tawny Frogmouth Ornament


Despite being experts at blending in, these remarkable birds truly stand out.

Part of the nightjar family (and not owls as commonly thought), they’re found nearly everywhere in Australia. This wide range means huge differences in weather and these incredible birds have adapted to thermoregulate themselves. On the next hot day, look closely at low shady branches for these incredible creatures. Or better yet, hang our ornament on your own Christmas tree and enjoy easy spotting.

  • 81mm x 123mm
  • Hand painted wooden ornament with jute twine / painted one-side
  • Designed, cut and hand-painted locally in Sydney

Since this item is handmade, each ornament is slightly varied in patterning, texture, wood grain or burn.
