Observation details

Male bird unfortunately perched low on an exposed branch and being mercilessly mobbed by a crow and assortment of aggressive Honeyeaters. We did our best to chase them away and eventually the frogmouth flew to a more secluded spot. We checked back about an hour later and found him resting peacefully in proximity to a female we did not notice earlier.
