Kermit, the Tawny Frogmouth? He had plumage that looked like a toupe or very heavy eyebrows. He differed alot from the books. Is that advanced age or something else? Just curious why the difference.

I just asked Steve and he said that their features differ from bird to bird. He is a tawny frogmouth that are related to American nighthawks and potoos from South America. Kermit’s just Kermit. That’s all. It’s simply his unique look.

I notice the bird is being restrained by a tie on it’s leg. Wouldn’t a body (aviator type) harness be safer? Is this what happened to the leg of the Frogmouth? Hopefully not but since it is taboo for us to use leg restraints on out pet parrots just curious why the zoo does not follow that protocol for safety’s sake?

Kermit, the Frogmouth is a very old bird and had an infection in his foot I believe. It was not caused by a leg restraint. I am unsure why they use the ankle leash. If I can find out for you, I will post the answer here.
