|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The Tawny Frogmouth, Podargus strigoides, is an Australian variety of frogmouth related to the Nightjar and not the Owl as commonly thought. |
These birds, as can be seen here, have much wider beaks than Owls and have very good camouflage techniques often difficult to see as they imitate the ends of broken tree branches, whilst sitting perfectly still.
This specimen was spotted in our back yard at home, which is adjacent to bushland.

Really this bird had camouflaged itself as a part of a tree, takes some imagination to realize.
Well taken shot.
