Tawny Frogmouths are nocturnal birds (night birds). With their nocturnal habit and owl-like appearance, they are often confused with owls, but are actually more closely related to the nightjars. Their feet are weak however, and lack the curved talons of owls. They can be seen in almost any habitat type except the denser rainforests and treeless deserts.

Many thanks for checking out my photos, please feel free to give feedback! My wanderings in nature and observations of birds, particularly raptors, is what gives me great joy and constantly reminds me of the beauty and strength of life. My favourites are raptors, I love their freedom, grace, ruthlessness, pride, adaptability and flexibility and I learn much about parenting, protection and blind faith from them.
