Not an owl
Though often mistaken for an owl, the tawny frogmouth belongs to the Nightjar family.
The tawny frogmouth has excellent camouflage. Helped by the colours of its feathers, these birds stay perfectly still and tilt their heads upright, making them hard to see among tree branches.
The waiting game
Tawny frogmouths wait for their prey to come to them, rather than seeking out their food. Once their prey is in sight, tawny frogmouths pounce down from their tree branch. Prey includes insects, frogs and other small animals.
