Javan Frogmouth - Batrachostomus javensis
A photo superbly achieved from a family of Javan frogmouths (from left to right - female, chick and male), belonging to the species Batrachostomus javensis (Caprimulgiformes - Podargidae). These are nocturnal birds with strong family ties, when brooding the male incubates in the day, and the female in the dark hours.
The species, sometimes known as Horsfield’s Frogmouth, is found in Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, and Thailand; where it inhabits subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests.
