GET IN MY BELLEH!!!


For the record, the Philippine Frogmouth feeds on grasshoppers, cicadas, crickets and beetles.



Scientific name: Batrachostomus septimus
Habitat : Forest and forest edge
Birdwatch note : Note huge mouth and 2 white bands, one on upper breast and one on lower breast. Occurs in 2 phases, brown and rufous. Nocturnal, spending day perched vertically resembling a broken branch.
Reproduction: The nest is built from a horizontal branch that is placed two to five meters above ground. It is made from the parent's own downy feathers which is held in place using spider silk, moss and lichens. The female lays one egg per season. The male incubates the egg during the day and the female at night.

The bad news: deforestation of the lowlands are making them homeless. :(



Found by chance while searching for the Philippine Eagle Owl.
