Two Tawny Frogmouths who make their home at the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo [BAMZ] started spending some “special time” together and an egg appeared, however unfortunately the egg is not viable.

Often mistaken for owls, these birds mate for life and are often seen perched together. Two white eggs are laid. Both sexes incubate the eggs. The male sits during the day, but both sexes share sitting at night.

According to the BAMZ newsletter their “two Tawny Frogmouths, a male named Kermit and a female named Duane, seem to have gotten into the spirit of things.

“The pair, which live in the Australasia exhibit, started spending some special time together as they set up a nest on the ledge above the squirrel’s cage. Within a couple of weeks – an egg appeared!

“Sadly, the egg is not viable, so there will be no new chicks in the near future, but who knows what the future may bring!

“In the wild, breeding season is typically from August to December, though it is important to remember that Australia’s is opposite to ours. And as the mating season is only just beginning, you never know… but we will be keeping our eyes out, for sure.”
