The Tawny Frogmouth (Podargus strigoides) is named for its large mouth, which it uses to catch insects and small animals. Despite popular belief frogmouths are not owls. With their nocturnal habit and owl-like appearance, they are often confused with owls, but are actually more closely related to the nightjars. Their feet are weak however, and lack the curved talons of owls. They are found in Australia. A nocturnal bird, the tawny frogmouth uses its large eyes and excellent hearing to hunt. The bird's grey plumage blends in among the branches of its home, helping it avoid detection by predators during the day.
