Guess What This Creature Is?

Hint: It is Boy's favorite. Leave your guess below. Boy says the correct guess will be the correct generic name of the creature...BUT...he wants you to know that the pictures are of the creature from two different South Pacific countries. Once somebody correctly guesses, Boy will tell you the identifying names of each creature.
Don't you hate it when the student becomes the teacher!!!!!

Hi, Megan,

I have nominated you for the Thinking Blogger Award. Please go to

to see what the meme is. I have linked to the original Thinking Blogger post, too, so if you decide to participate you can get your picture and see the meme rules!
What fun!

Thanks Boy!
How long do we have for this assignment?

Will an extension be granted if I give you some lame excuse?

(I think you are a teacher in the making)

I await your reply clearly stating expectations for this homework..............

Megan Bayliss said...

Kaber - you are on the right track. All will be revealed soon (as soon as I can get Boy to write up what it is!!!).

Elisheva - WOW. Thanks. I would love to participate but it will have to wait until tomorrow. Am desperately trying to finish my lectures for this week. And a note from Boy: Thank you very much.

Birdwing - (words from Boy, not mother) You can have until Thursday. What is an extension? Oh...Mum just told me. NO! I will tell on Thursday. I think you already know. They eat Birdwings.

Hi Megan... it looks like a Tawny Frogmouth... not quite an owl, it is categorised as 'owl-like'.

We had a mother/child pair roosting outside our living room window for a couple of seasons. My twitcher-husband was in seventh heaven when one flew in the window in the middle of the night and he had to rescue it from our cat who was studying it intently.

Megan Bayliss said...

And Gillian is the correct guesser. They are both Frogmouths - a nocturnal bird and a member of the Nightjay family.

The Tawny Frogmouth is Boy's favorite (first one pictured). They are common here and we spot them often. The one with the bright red eyes is a Papuan Frogmouth. Because I was born and grew up in Papua New Guinea, Boy wanted the pic included. He also rather liked the scarey look of the blood red eyes.

Boy now has to write some facts about Frogmouths and post them to his site.
