How many Tawny Frogmouths in this photo?

Photo ~
Here's an interesting photo that has popped up on the internet in the last couple of days.   It is a Parks Australia photo that seems to show a tree-stump with a twig bird nest in the centre.   Upon closer inspection, there are two perfectly camouflaged Tawny Frogmouth (Podargus strigoides) birds in the photo.   There colouration mixture allows them to blend in with their surroundings, as perfectly evidenced here.   The two are poised very close to each other, quite still, awaiting insect prey to approach their poised perch.
