'Tawny Frogmouth in Tree' ~ Unison

Pair of Tawny Frogmouths sitting in a Tree.

Trees holds special and sacred significance to the area I'm from in Wiradjuri country in relation to culture, which marked sacred sites, were used for shelter and cover from the elements, everyday tools and also for a means to communicate and more.

The earliest fossil evidence of Tawny Frogmouths are from the Tertiary Period from 56-33.9 Million Years ago.
Although related to the Owl, the Tawny Frogmouth is not an Owl but more closely related to Nightjars. They are often mistaken as Owls, they are similar looking but not the same.
Differences between the Owl & Tawny Frogmouth:

  • Tawny Frogmouths have weak feet, Owls have strong, tough & flexible feet.
  • Tawny Frogmouths have eyes on the side of their face, Owls have them on the front of their face. 

You are approaching a time of unison with the light and dark aspects of your nature, while it can be confronting at times to understand this part, with courage and carefulness it can be done. Doing this takes up a lot of time and energy and is not something for the faint at heart. Are you understanding the darker aspects of your nature, do they become camouflaged at times during the day and come out at night, or maybe it comes around like a feeling of being afraid or sacred as a way for us to recognise this part.
Recognising these parts within ourself can help bring about more of a nurturing energy which is vital to establishing groups, relationships, home life and brings us a greater sense of purpose and peace from deep within. Enabling us to be more brave and fearless in our actions towards others and towards our hopes and dreams.

Tawny Frogmouths mate for life, so when we can find that balance between the 2 the unison can be magical, without darkness there cannot be stars in the night sky.
