When is an owl not an owl?
When it’s a tawny frogmouth of course!
Tawny frogmouths are native to Australia. They are related to owls and can be found right around the country. During the day, tawny frogmouths like to use their excellent camouflage skills by sitting perfectly still and pretending to be a branch of a tree. They are much more active at night, when they hunt for nocturnal insects and small creatures like worms and snails.
I hope this one doesn’t invite me to dinner!
