Tawny Frogmouths are medium-sized, bulky birds with a large broad head and a relatively short tail. The plumage on crown, upper parts and breast provides superb camouflage against bark and comes in a range of shades of mottled grey and chestnut brown, streaked with black.
There is a common misconception that Tawny Frogmouths are owls. This is not true! While both are nocturnal, owls hunt by grasping prey in their strong talons. Tawny Frogmouths catch their prey using their beaks. Tawny Frogmouths have a distinctive triangular-shaped beak, wide at the base and coming to a hooked point, with feathery bristles around the top of the beak. They have a strong bite and sharp edges to the beak, which is larger than most other birds, relative to body size.
