If you came across something like this, you might easily mistake it for a cotton wool ball. It is similar in size & appearance but in reality this is a Tawny Frogmouth chick! Tawny Frogmouths are one of Australia's much loved birds.They are commonly found in peoples gardens and are excellent controllers of pests like snails and mice in your garden. Unfortunately many Tawnys become victims of poisons commonly used to control pests when they ingest the poisoned animals. Be aware of how the food chain works in nature and use natural/safe methods of pest control.
