Tawny Frogmouths are nesting at the moment. Tawnies (which are part of the Nightjar family) are probably more common than you might think, because they're so good at camouflage that in the right tree, they look just like a stick, especially as they tend to sit absolutely still with their beaks in the air.
Their call is pretty strange for a bird. It's a droning "woo-woo-woo" sound. Here is recording of one that Nick Talbot has uploaded to the Xeno-Canto website. http://www.xeno-canto.org/352950
