Tawny Frogmouth

This is really not a picture of a owl, but of the Tawny Frogmouth.
There are many different kinds of Frogmouths, and they live in the southern part of Asia, China and Australia.
Frogmouths sleep during the day and hunt insects at night.
They have awesome camouflage. The Frogmouth blends in to the tree that it is sitting on when it puts it's feathers down.
The Tawny Frogmouth get's it's name from it's big mouth that looks like a frog's mouth. The inside of it's mouth is a yellowish color, and it uses it to scoop up insects.
