The Tawny Frogmouth is an Australian native, and although it looks owl like, they are not owls - they are more closely related to nightjars. Owls are raptors with long talons, and they hunt while flying, then swoop down on their prey. Tawny frogmouths have much smaller prey than owls, (mainly insects, but sometimes small frogs, lizards or mice). Their feet are small, they use their stong beak to crush their prey, which they catch by sitting motionless (they are very well camouflaged in the trees) and waiting for their meal to come closer to them. Owls have eyes on the fornt of their head, while the frogmouths are more on the sides.
