Tawny Frogmouth - No, Its Not an Owl or a Puppet

small tawny frogmouth

Hello I'm a real bird not a puppet!

 

The tawny frogmouth is a species of bird native to Australasia, found across Australia and Tasmania. It favours tropical forested savannahs and open woodlands as its habitat. Often mistaken as part of the owl family, the strange-looking big-mouth is in fact part of the frogmouth family which is quite closely related to both nightjars and oilbirds.
