They are masters of camouflage and during the day will perch quietly in a tree, unless disturbed.
The Tawny Frogmouth may look like an owl, but it is more closely related to the nightjar. Although they are nocturnal, like the owl, their feet are smaller and they do not have the curved talons of the owl.
Tawnies are found across Australia.
These photos were taken in the south west of Western Australia, but we do see Tawnies in Perth as well. Photos taken by Peter Wiese, reproduced here with permission.
